    Joe Grimm, recruiter extraordinaire, departure party at Unity

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | August 9, 2008

    Joe Grimm recruiter retirement party at Unity

    At Unity, about 100 people came to the departure of Joe Grimm, who I must say is the best newspaper recruiter that I have ever met, from his job at the Detroit Free Press. He’s touched the career of hundreds upon hundreds of young journalists (including me) — encouraging

    I first met him at AAJA in Honolulu in 1995. I’ve been amazed how well he kept track of me over the years.

    Among his tech savvy helpful offerings over the years: and Breaking In, a self-published book on the newspaper industry. (The cover has this interesting stigmata imagery.)

    When my book came out he sent me a beautiful encrusted fortune cookie!

    They made fortune cookies for him. His last day was a great day. 08-08-08

    Thanks Joe Grimm Fortune Cookies
