Times-Picayune editor Jim Amoss sent this memo to employees this morning:

Colleagues, Many of you have asked me when job openings in the new company would be posted. I wanted to let you know that applications and job descriptions for several positions in news, sports and entertainment are now online. Additional jobs will be posted in the coming days and weeks. To read them, go to www.nola.com/jobs/ and type “Nola Media Group” in the search field. The application may be completed online.
Any employee, whether you received a severance letter or an offer for a job in the new company, is free to apply for one of these positions. Both internal and external candidates will be evaluated for them.
Employees who received offers will receive job descriptions sometime Monday. I apologize for the delay.
“Smarter than Newhouse” by Jack Davis: “Let’s give the innovators their big chance, and a big welcome. Let’s challenge them — and others like them who could bring their talents to the city – to show that New Orleans is a leader in technologically enabled breakthroughs in community reporting, investigative journalism, cultural richness, happy advertisers, accountable public officials.”
