AfterDawn: Tech news staff writer positions filled

Written by Jari Ketola @ 12 May 2006 11:40 User comments (29) staff writer positions filled After a roughly five-month selection period, we have finally found our new staff writers at! As of today, Davedough (Washington DC, USA) and Lethal_B (London, UK) are members of the AfterDawn team. Welcome aboard, guys!
In total we received over one hundred job applications, most of which were very good indeed. We started the second round of the interviews in March, and finally got the final assignments evaluated last week.

After these two new recruitments, the AfterDawn staff consists of five writers (Dela, Ankle, Siggy, Davedough and Lethal_B), two software admins (waiski and krimu), two web developers (dRD and Pihlis), one web designer (teemu), one administrative assistant (Kata), and one all round techie (myself). That's twelve in total, if my math is right.

Huge thanks to everyone who applied for the position. It was definitely a challenge going through all the applications and finding the top candidates!

WELCOME to Davedough and Lethal_B !!! WheW! I think poor Dela, who has graciously given SO much of his time to all of us, deserved a bit of help. A/D continues to inform, educate and entertain all of us in a most helpful and welcome way. It's a s-k-e-e-r-y and confused jumble of technology out there, and these two gentlemen's spin on things should help sort out the Riff from the Raff. Welcome guys! And now that you're on A/D's payroll, don't forget to sign-up for the optional A/D pension plan! :-)

.....and company car, and a key to the executive washroom, and a company credit card (for entertaining guests), and paid vacation leave, and free retail software, and profit sharing (stock options), and sick-leave benefits, and free vacation flights with hotel accomodations and meals, and Christmas Bonuses, and bi-annual raises, and discount offers and coupons and samples and and and ........ Why, it just boggles the mind!! :-) (Mind you, I'm easily boggled). <gg>
