We have a position in Creative Services (graphics) open.  Great opportunity to join a stable company with long term goals.  (ive been here almost 17 years and enjoy the job and the area)

Do you guys provide headgear, is there a stipend, or is it up to the person to provide it themselves?

But seriously, I bet that would be a fun job. Good luck finding the right person!

Hi Joe,

Would this be an on-site position only or is there a possibility for remote employment?

This would be an on site position...we've tried remote and it doesn't fit well with our process here.   Thanks for asking!

This sounds like an exciting position in a stable company with great prospects.  I hope you find someone great to fill it.

I was thinking it might be interesting to also consider tapping into some of the latent talent and knowledge in the modeling community by doing project-specific contracts for artwork.  I could see how once you approved the commercial viability of a project, giving a contract to a knowledgeable and motivated individual could yield a lot of potential products.  Perhaps it is not worth the effort (and hassle), but I get a sense that there are a handful of people with the requisite skill sets and enthusiasm (and time!) to make this work.  A contributing program would be a good PR move too, as it would give the community a path to models (all vetted by MT for viability).  Starting small, like the weathering projects, might be a good way to test the waters.  You could package it with "models by modelers"or something similar to highlight the interaction and give some free PR too.  As I said, just a thought.

I'm with Scott. Decent idea. However, it was said the last time Joe had this position open that MTL has a large research library on-site, and this is one of the significant issues in the need to have this person in-house. I'm sure there are capable enthusiasts who could participate in such a program, but most come with a built-in bias towards a handful of RRs, coming-up short in terms of variety. We already see this from, f'rinstance, Atlas, who leans a little towards Eastern roads, and Kato... well... we know the problem there.

I bet Joe couldn't have predicted the way this thread turned out.

But it is artistic . . .

Nobody can predict what happens on TRW - that is one of the reasons this place is so much fun to visit.

Let the record show that for the second time in a year, I agree with @peteski:

Back to the original topic - @Shipsure i have passed this to a couple of folks who are graphic design people but not model railroaders.  Hope you find someone soon.

I could do better, but I'd need more money

I'm speechless (and that doesn't happen often)!

I was going to say "is this within the calendar year or within 365 day span?" but then I wouldn't be speechless anymore.  :D

I also hope that Joe finds a talented person.  I wonder if they are expanding their graphic department, or just just filling a vacated position?
