Northwest Florida Daily News business editor Dusty Ricketts has a plea to the companies in his area: Let me come work for you.
Ricketts writes, “Thankfully, I haven’t been fired as the business editor of the Daily News, but I am starting a new series that will run monthly in the business section.
“Other than a short stint of working on Destin Harbor scheduling fishing trips for some of the charter boats and a disastrous attempt at trying to sell lawn care over the telephone, my entire professional career has been spent in the newsroom of one newspaper or another.
“It’s time to change that, at least a little.
“This is my pitch to the business owners and managers in Okaloosa, Walton and Santa Rosa counties to put me to work.
“Let me come in and work a half day or full day for you. After it’s over, we talk about things like how I did and if I am hirable, and then I could come back to the comfort of my newsroom and write about the experience.”
