You probably remember JR Raphael leaving Duncan Riley’s The Inquisitr to launch his own site. Well, there’s been an ad out where Riley’s been looking for a replacement. Over 400 applications (possibly more as you’re reading this) has been sent in, and the winner is…? Well, let’s start with who were not winners:
There were some amazing applicants based on experience, including an ex-CNN correspondent, a couple of TV ppl, maybe half a dozen newspaper reporters, and a range of people from very well known blogs.
Right, so who is filling JR Raphael’s shoes?
Kim LaCapria, based in New York, and obviously capable of writing an amazing job application. In fact, the application was so good that it prompted Riley to blog about it, which is something you might want to consider if you’re going to search for a new blogging gig.
