Everything fits my skills, but I have no idea what Quark is...

 

That is a sh*tload of hours, though.

12 hour days during homestands, and you only get $500 a week?

 

 

My question is: do you get a ring if we win?

 

 

Then, I'd say it's worth it...

I think so.

And one hell of a reference for future jobs....

 

Not to mention free meals during home games! Oh my god! :whistle

 

And think of it as a "Clubhouse" sort of venture. You might get to chill in the stadium with the Spanish oposse.

well thats how they get away with it. You arent allowed to pay someone that little and call it a job. Atleast the stuff you do is interesting. I was actually going to try and get an intership with the panthers last summer, except a little thing called a lock out came and ruined everything

Quark is page layout software often used by newspapers and advertising firms to create (newspaper and ad) pages. Ironically I was the original beta-test site for Quark back in the eighties. I remember when Fred was a one man firm fighting against IBM and PageMaker for market share. He'd be at publishing conventions with his solo computer and fold-up desk in the corner of some exhibition hall when the big guys had 1000 sq ft booths in the center of all the action.

 

Thing was he had the better product and ultimately he won over the users. Much like the Marlins he just didn't listen to media guys counting him out and just kept making his product better and better.

By the way, where did you receive this information?

Basically you have to have no previous obligations.

 

No job, no school and no social life.

Perfect 'job' for recent college grads. Delay those tuition loans while getting job experience and building some contacts. Most recent journalism grads are working as office temps, struggling to get published.

Thanks.

 

I was a great program 12 years ago when I last used it and I can only imagine how good it is now. It really put Apple on the map as far as newspapers go and because he had the foresight to write it in C (or some variant I forget) he was able totransport it to the Windows platform when it came out.
