Well, this is tempting.

How to approach the concept of a resume? Let me give this some thought and I'll be back with a proper correspondence.

The position intrigues me. I'll grant, I've kept my nose away from news stories, because my focus was on researching medicinal cannabis and getting my feet under me with the Study Hall, but that's turned out to be a good thing, because in the interim I learned to view the news without frustration. The timing of this job opening is almost perfect in my world.

My academic training is in the field of education. I've a BSED, Elementary Education with an Endorsement in Early Childhood from Abilene Christian University, an institution of higher learning known to send well-trained souls into the workforce. Although I never used those credentials professionally in the field of education, you can imagine how beneficial the training came to be as an entrepreneur in the field of tattooing. The minor in Art came in handy as the design artist too.

My ability to communicate effectively is all over this site. This position would be a realignment of my focus, but the goal would remain the same - to advance the cause of 420 Magazine to end the prohibitionary practices that keep us from utilizing cannabis to its maximum potential.

Am I dedicated to the site? I think that question has been answered. Do I have time and inclination to dedicate to the search for relevant news and share that with the membership? Absolutely. I'm a retired woman who discovered she has a talent for writing. I have so much time it's enviable, and yet, are there ever enough hours in the day to get it all done? Not a problem when you're having so much fun.

I'm capable of fine-tuning the prose to meet the needs of the position, understanding that this folksy means I have of carrying on conversation can be tempered to a more mature and responsible demeanor. I believe some of my work here speaks to my ability to adapt. Of course proper citing and credit will be of primary concern. Practice is all that's needed here to make it a matter of habit.

Ego..... I don't think mine would recognize me anymore. Not a problem. If I'm having problems communicating I'm going to look to my own attitude first and see if I can amend it to hear what the other member is trying to say. No need to get pulled into a clash of egos. Like I said, mine's been set aside already.

I'm certain matters of compensation would be workable. It'd be nice if a laptop was part of the package, but that's me whistfully thinking.

I don't know enough of our members to tell you if I'm the best person here for this job, but I can assure you you'd be hard pressed to find one who will work harder with more passion. I'd be honored to be seriously considered for the position.

You know where to find me for finer details.

Eako , you could vote for her in the contest for member of the month. I did. Personally I think votes would be a ________( fill in the blank) way to qualify for a job ( like president of country). I think a more detailed job description would be a plus as well. From what I gather , the "News Hawk " will cut and paste breaking news feeds for the "News Moderator" to edit or whatever. Just guessing tho, I dunno.

Being well connected with Washington insiders or legal state legislators and congressmen and congresswomen or cannabis business insiders would be a plus for breaking news , fake or whatever, " a friend of a friend said this is about to go down", that sort of thing, but then you would be a journalist and not a simple, cut and paste, news hawk. A lot of the stuff I read on the news e-mail here I have already read somewheres else. A lot of the 420 news is also stuff I have not read yet and I have no clue where it comes from ( prolly from local newspapers, state to state).

I am a 64 year old man! I first smoked marijuana when I was 14. One of my latest claims to fame was that I was the first person in the State of Nevada to get a medical marijuana card! Of course, that was back in 2001. Prior to that, I was active in working with the State representative that introduced the legislation (AB453) that eventually became law. I lobbied many of the State Senators & Represtatives in behalf of the legislation. I also testified in the State Senate on behalf of medical marijuana. I have also been a legal grower (for myself) since legalization!
Currently, I have had an excess of time as I was recently terminated from my casino position for having THC in my system (go figure).
During this time away from work, I have spent every day Tweeting and otherwise contacting State & Federal officials in support of the eradication of federal laws against marijuana!
I believe I would be a good addition to your staff & would jump at the chance to prove myself! And, getting paid for what I believe in would be a dream come true!
I look forward to hear from you!

Sincerely,

Ron Smith

I'm up to the task. Take a chance on me and 420 Magazine will come out golden.

I've lurked this site for 3 years, am a bilingual US citizen living abroad in a cannabis friendly south american country doing medicinal research on the singular plant that everybody loves. I am a grower, a consumer, an activist, and I work in a laboratory developing legal and safe cannabis derivatives on a national level. From seed to the endocannabinoid system!

Medicinal administration of cannabis via tinctures is just a part of my full time work in Colombia. I make my own schedule so there is plenty of time to devote to 420 Magazine News Hawk responsibilities. The mainstream media cannot be trusted according to current US President Donald Trump. I propose to uphold a pledge of offering concise, straight-forward news articles hand picked from cross-referenced sources that are cutting edge and focused on all things cannabis.

Pick me!

Thank you to everyone who submitted applications for the position of News Moderator, we are truly grateful.

We have chosen Sue Sweet, formerly known as SweetSue. :cheer:

Taking on 5 new staff members over the last few weeks has proven to be quite the challenge, so we'll open this door again in the near future, once everyone has been trained and working smoothly. :thanks:

I have already sent you information about my qualifications, and lack of! Hahaha!
I am a self-motivator & a diligent advocate of marijuana legalization! I have sent out Tweets daily to my State Representatives and every other official that might listen! And, even to those who I know will not listen, as I feel they above all, need to be inundated with daily opinions!
Feel free to check out my Tweets under the handle "SkiBum1353".
I would love the opportunity to work for something that I truly believe in, such as making marijuana available to those who need it!
I also believe very much in making it available as a recreational "drug" although I hate to refer to it as a drug!
But, if it takes one drunk off of the street, as an alternative, I will call it whatever it takes!
I hope you will consider me as a serious candidate for the open position!

Hi, I'm interested in the position. I'm retired, but in a former life I was a reporter/photographer for dailies and weeklies and magazines, did copy and content editing for them and for book publishing companies too, and worked in the art departments as well (AD and other positions). Midway through the career I found the tech side, and I've been creating web sites and writing for a few sites as well. I am pretty new here, though, and I know you're looking for a longer posting history than I have, but maybe my qualifications can override a bit of that? I can email a resume, samples and links to sites where hopefully some of my work is still up or at least in the archives. Thanks for reading and good luck with your search.

I have spent elongated periods of time devoted to studying this plant, it is a powerful source of strength, utterly malleable to those whom are open to receiving such puissant gifts it has to offer. With it, I am always in a perpetual, seemingly ceaseless ongoing state of learning. I trust what it confers, what it fosters, what it produces, what it yields, what it shows; all of which reiterating, are ultimately utilized for growing/evaluating prejudices one may have of another. I believe, perhaps more than anything, the implicit worth, the sagacity of this innocent plant, a plant which reveals to the user what is complimentary to the journey of it's user. From my end, you can expect an equally devout and devoted accentuating force that further promotes the much needed vocalizing voice, the echoing ambassador for this life-saving emerald-colored agent...the very same agent that has indeed, proliferated and inspired the musical artisans/craftsmen/architects of a multitude of societies to reach a climactic point in their lives where what was necessary to enhance their lives was the ingestion of this awesome force. Do you want a meticulous researcher? Do you want somebody who will commit themselves the energy required, a person deliberate in their appeal, constructive in their approach, methodical in their dissemination pf information, and finally progressive in their approach? Cast your die, and see what we cannot alchemically produce together!
