Housekeeping: A Note From Dealbreaker HR

Author:
Publish date:

You've probably already noticed that we have a new guest writer. Perhaps you've heard of him? Zach Kouwe, formerly of the NY Times, was last in the news in a little episode a little while back when it came to light that he borrowed passages from the Wall Street Journal, a no-no that got him dismissed.

You're probably also aware he'd done a similar thing to yours truly when he lifted a memo from us and claimed he'd received it on his own (a claim later retracted by DealBook). Apparently that's what it takes to get a job here these days! So ladies, if you're looking for a new gig just start CTRL+C'ing DealBreaker-- and I'm sure we'll be giving you a call. Plagiarizers with tech expertise will get extra-special consideration.

Housekeeping: Dealbreaker Is Hiring More Columnists

Do you want to write things on Dealbreaker? We are looking for one or more people to join our current stable of columnists to write stuff on Dealbreaker. Topics could include private equity, hedge funds, b-school, stripping one’s way through b-school, or something that has absolutely nothing to do with any of those things but which you are particularly passionate about. If you’re interested, get in touch and let us know your background and what you’d be interested in writing about. If you are currently gainfully employed on Wall Street (and would like to stay that way) for a firm that would not look favorably on a part-time writing career, anonymous/pseudonymous columns are fine.
