It appears the hiring freeze at CQ Roll Call is thawing. After losing no less than five staffers in the last few weeks alone, the newsgroup announced this morning plans to fill more than 30 open positions. Internal memo from Sr. VP and Editorial Director Mike Mills, obtained by FishbowlDC:
“All: Over the next few weeks, as we begin our new budget year and bring everyone into our new building, we’re resuming our drive to fill more than 30 open positions at CQ Roll Call. In the newsroom, for example, we will begin hiring to fill two dozen positions, including reporters, editors, legislative analysts, copy editors, web producers, web designers, database editors and researchers. We hire only the best, which is why our staff has long been our best source for finding new talent. Exciting things are happening this year at CQ Roll Call, so go to corporate.cqrollcall.com to see the list of openings — and spread the word!
