FishbowlDC has learned that CQ Roll Call is undergoing a hiring freeze. The freeze is expected to be temporary, says CQ Roll Call Editorial Director Mike Mills. The most recent vacancies include HOH’s Elizabeth Brotherton and congressional reporter Jackie Kucinich.
Mills confirmed the news.
“True,” he wrote in an email. “We’ve been asked by our bosses in London to hold off on filling vacancies for four weeks as they finalize budgets for the new fiscal year, which begins April 1. We expect to be making some offers right after that. I’m also told this is not limited to CQ Roll Call.”
Mills has specifically been told that the freeze extends across The Economist Group and is not limited to just CQ Roll Call.
