Based in NYC and have 40 hours a week to spare right now during this "lull" in the economy? Well, I'm hiring, at least! My company has a short-term (2-4 week) project I could use some help on, immediately. Paid, obviously, and I've got enough to keep you busy for 40 hours a week, if you can spare it. Underemployed journalists encouraged (I sympathize), but smart, reliable independent workers with good writing/editing skills should apply. NYC-based folks only. Shoot me an email if you're interested. Could have you up and going as early as tomorrow or Monday.
