Dateline: Tue 21 Aug 2012

This is from former Indianapolis Star copy editor Gail Alexander, who left the paper (RIF'd) and has found both other ways to pay the bills and meaningful work.

Here's her tip:

"We’re hiring copywriters and builders (designers) (at Yellow Pages Group) so if you know of folks who need a job, could you pass this along?

"There are lots of young people here, but they also welcome us old farts. Paid time off is generous but the pay is closer to entry-level than old fart pay. There is health insurance; it’s not premium but it’s better than nothing. Here is the link:


Gail is hardly an old fart. We all know who is.

Here is what she says about her time since leaving the newspaper:

"My current title is copywriting specialist but I’m also in the running for another job, so I may not be here much longer. Still it’s a good stable place to work. Since leaving The Star, I’ve done a little of everything including running the teleprompter at Channel 6 last summer. My Census work (a year and a half) was the longest and best-paying. I was a partnership specialist (PR work) and regional technician, where I managed the Columbus Census office for a couple months and helped close the local offices across the state. What I’ve discovered about the over-qualified in the work force is that we need to convince people that we ARE willing to work for less in exchange for stability, insurance and paid time off. I got there by working through Kelly Services and now here. Being able to sell yourself also helps tremendously."

One thing I would really like to touch upon is that fat burning plan fast may be possible by the correct diet and exercise. A person's size not just affects the look, but also the quality of life. Self-esteem, depression, health risks, plus physical abilities are influenced in extra weight. It is possible to just make everything right whilst still having a gain. Should this happen, a condition may be the perpetrator. While too much food rather than enough physical exercise are usually guilty, common medical conditions and widespread prescriptions could greatly amplify size. Many thanks for your post here.
