We're blessed with the opportunity to make three new hires.
Instead of retaining an expensive headhunter, we are turning to the people who know us best, our readers, to help us locate the right (or is it the left?) individuals to join the Indy team.
To help get your thinking caps turned on, we are offering cash rewards:
• $1,000 reward to you — or $1,500 to a local nonprofit of your choice — if we hire our new advertising director and it's a person you're the first to formally nominate.
• $250 reward to you — or $500 to a local nonprofit of your choice — if we hire a sales executive whom you're the first to formally nominate.
• $250 reward to you — or $500 to a local nonprofit of your choice — if we hire a news reporter and you're the first to formally nominate him or her.
While the Independent has launched national searches for all these positions, our sincere hope is to hire individuals with strong ties to the Pikes Peak region. That's because what defines the Independent is our passion for, belief in, and love of our fast-growing and ever-fascinating community.
Applications for all three positions are due on or before June 15. For information go to csindy.com, scroll to the bottom and click on "Jobs at the Indy."
No phone calls. Thanks.
