Where the Jobs Are!

I’ve spent some time going through the emails that you have sent to ffjobhunt@foxnews.com. After realizing that this segment goes by much too quickly for many of you to get to your television or grab a pen, this is for you. I’ll be posting a new list each week to coincide with my Fox and Friends, Fox News Radio, and Fox and Friends First appearances.
