My guess from your headline is you haven't hired one of those laid-off copy editors. See, I can find typos on the Internet, too!

Drug test? Of course there will be a drug test. Who would work that job on that schedule for that pay unless they were stoned, dude?

On the other hand, learning to move heavy objects from one point on the earths surface to another probably has greater career potential than a degree in journalism.
