Freep still seeking online editor

comment

And now a word from the Keeping An Eye On The Competition Department...

Apparently, the Burlington Free Press is still looking for a full-time online editor. The big box ad in Saturday's classifieds says:

This position requires applicants to work directly in the newsroom and report to the Executive Editor. Applicants should have a college degree, writing experience, a background in delivering content to a web site in a college or work setting and possess the necessary technical knowledge, including familiarity with a range of web-based and database software. Other skills: creativity, developing interactive features, planning and presenting information in an easy-to-use format, and the ability to adapt to a fast-paced, fast-changing environment.

So, will Gannett give the new online editor the freedom to experiment with interactive features like blogs and forums and comment threads? Will they implement RSS feeds? Will they find someone to fill the job who knows anything at all about Vermont? Hey, Brian Brown from iBurlington, what are you doing for work these days?
