Good morning all – I hope you aren’t all feeling the kick of the Irish tiger this morning.  Nothing like a few job leads to sweep those cobwebs away!

A quick note on Key Requirements I don’t include – when a company is asking for a “command of the English Language”, “communication skills”, or “proficiency in MS Office”, I’m just going to assume you all have those things because you’re writers.  I only list the “hard” requirements such as a diploma, years of experience, or unusual software (i.e. Adobe Audition).
