Want to Work For Penn State Football?

I got a job posting in my inbox earlier this week. And it was not an unpaid internship based somewhere where no one would want to live. Recession? Ha!
Title: Penn State Football Marketing and Promotions Assistant
Contract dates: full time with addition of working all Penn State Football marketing events. January 11, 2010 through July 9, 2010
Salary and benefits: $ 1,200 /month. No employee benefits or employee status.
Overview of position: responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Penn State Football Marketing Office and the planning and execution of the annual Blue White Weekend.

Report directly to, Guido D’Elia, Director of Communications and Branding for Penn State Football.

Looking through the description, it seems this position will be critical in coordinating 2010’s Blue-White Weekend. I’m not so sure that a few of our commenters that have referred to D’Elia as “Guidumb” or “arrogant prick” would be interested in this position, but there are scores more that would do anything to be involved in the phenomenon that is Penn State football. Even at $1,200 a month with no benefits, they’re not going to have any trouble hiring someone.

Gorman Abruptly Resigns

Head coach of the men’s soccer program Barry Gorman unexpectedly announced his resignation Monday. He leaves a legacy of 22 years of coaching and three Big Ten titles in his wake. Citing “personal reasons,” he has left the team to a nation-wide search for his successor.

“We expected Gorman to be there,” [rising Senior and Co-Captain Andres] Casais said of next season. “He was a father figure to us.”

Oof, that can’t feel good. The move isn’t completely out of the blue, as Gorman was periodically absent during the past few weeks without notice. But from all accounts, his intention to resign was only revealed yesterday. On the abandonment scale, this registers just slightly above “going to the store for some cigarettes and never coming back.”
