Is it a freelance or an in-house position?

Jill (@bonnjill) - October 25, 2011

No clue. You’ll have to write them and ask. I would assume in-house.

Again, I know what I’ve written here and nothing else. It was forwarded to a Kent State alumni listserv.

There you are. If it turns out that for a job of such wonderful specifications the pay is ridiculusly low (lower than that of a cobbler), then the offer will no longer be awesome.

Well, one won’t know what they pay unless someone writes and ask them. I’d rather know for sure before speculating and getting all up in arms about it.
