    Okay… only tangentially… received an email from cineworks who has a couple openings; one part time $18/hr gig and one volunteer. Don’t comment here, I am not affiliated with Cineworks, I just figured I might know someone who’d be interested in one of these two gigs.

    Keep in mind that this post was made in August 2009 before you go apply – I still have people contacting me about 5 year old posts as if it was posted yesterday.
