Here's your chance to move closer to Bill Gates. Thanks to Chron business editor Ken Howe, who has this to share:
I got a call from Becky Bisbee, business editor of the Seattle Times this morning. She expressed a lot of sympathy for what we're going throught. She has three, maybe four jobs available, and urges anyone who's interested to contact her soonest at email@example.com. Send resume, links to stories, word documents, etc. She stressed blogging, podcasting and other new media experience a plus.
Becky said the Times pays customary and reasonable moving expenses. Her phones are 206-464-2494 and 206-464-2111. Here are the openings:
Assistant Business Editor/Writer
Player/coach to write and edit R.E. stories
To cover Nordstrom, Costco, Amazon, Expedia, etc
To cover digital media, the Web, MicroSoft, Xbox, etc.
She may also be hiring a Trade/Ports Reporter
