Meet Going Concern

Going Concern GC tabloid for accountants CFOs finance executives.jpgThe Breaking Media family of sites — which until now consisted of Dealbreaker, Above the Law, and Fashionista — continues to grow. Today we welcome Going Concern, a blog for accountants.
Going Concern site will cover the Big Four, as well as the smaller accounting firms and chief financial officers from major companies, offering the heady mix of original news, insider analysis, and entertainment that you’ve come to expect from Breaking Media. Going Concern will try its darnedest to make accounting fun or at least marginally amusing. And it’s a place we can segregate all the accountants so they don’t bother us here (just kidding, sort of, we love you all).
Please spread the word, especially to your friends who work in the field. You can check out Going Concern here, and you can learn more by reading the links collected below. If you’re interested in advertising opportunities, on Going Concern or any of our other sites, please email us. Thanks!

Dealbreaker Seeks A New Writer (or Writers)

Back in October, we mentioned we were looking for an additional writer (or writers). In case you were wondering, we’ve not yet filled the position. Because Bess and Equity Private have been doing such an excellent job, we haven’t felt much pressure on this front. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
But we are once again thinking of hiring more talent, given how the site is thriving (and how many Wall Streeters might be looking for new jobs right now). Would you be interested (or would you know anyone who might be)?
This is a full-time position, with standard benefits — health insurance, a 401(k), abuse from anonymous commenters. If you’re looking to transition from Wall Street to writing, this is an excellent opportunity.
If you’d like to apply for this position, please email us at jobs at dealbreaker dot com (subject line: “DealBreaker Writer Application”). Please describe yourself and your background, what you have to offer DealBreaker, and your vision for the site. Feel free to include a résumé, a writing sample, a link to your own blog (if you have one), or any other information relevant to evaluation of your application.
Thanks for your interest. We look forward to hearing from you.

How To Tip Off DealBreaker: A Users Guide

dealbreakertipswhispersleakswallstreet.jpgOne of the great secrets of our success here at DealBreaker is our readers. We have the brightest, wittiest and best informed commenters on the web who help keep our recent comments page always fresh. And our tipsters–often people we have never met who reach out to us through email and phone calls–have helped us break stories and get the insider angle on stories where everyone else is simply re-writing the press release.
It seems not everyone knows how to get in touch with us. It couldn’t be easier! You can email us at tips@dealbreaker.com or calls us at 212-334-1871 with your office gossip, bonus rumors, misbehaving banker snap shots, true-life stories of work gone bad, deal news, trading desk follies, market movements, promotions and firings, and whatever else happens to be on your mind.
But if you are worried that the SEC might subpoena your emails, there are two more ways to send us tips. You can now contact us via instant messaging. Our AIM screenname is TheDealBreakers. But sometimes you need that extra-measure of security–or rather, to avoid those extra measures of security from the folks who might be monitoring your computer usage. So we also have a DealBreaker tips text message account. Send your text tips to 973-495-0177.
Here’s a creative way of sending tips that users recently discovered: take a photo with your phone and send it to us on the tips line or to tips@dealbreaker.com. It’s a great way to send firm memos without leaving any trace that can be found by your employer!
As always, you can rest assured that we will keep your identity confidential. Thanks!

Feel Free To Give Us Your SS# As Well

The ad people in this asylum have a couple questions they’d like you to answer so please do so below sans “Why the fuck are you asking us this” since it obviously has to do with some sort of money-making (Ponzi) scheme they’re cooking up. Then, we can return to the important work of analyzing this man-on-mouse pic for clues re: where things went wrong.
