Know anyone who might like a great job with a great company?? See info
below. It's not teaching, but it is a job with books...many of them suitable
for teachers and parents...this is (was) my daughter's job. She has decided
to quit the big city and head home to evergreen Washington state, get her
teaching degree, and work on her "music composition for children" program.
So, if you know anyone in the Chicago area...or anyone who might like to
MOVE to the Chicago area...have them contact Mark Voigt at this email

To Anyone interested in working for IPG:
Please let Mark Voigt at IPG know if you have any candidates for my soon to
be former, wonderful job. IPG is a nurturing, spirited place to work and
grow. The people at the company are warm, intelligent, fun-loving, and good
friends. It has been an incredible place to work and I would recommend this
job to anyone interested in working in the publishing trade, living in
Chicago (a fantastic, vibrant city), and/or furthering their experience in
Spanish business. The trade shows are fun and you get to travel to lots of
great cities and meet nice book people, teachers, museum curators, park
rangers, and people from around the world. The company goes to NYC twice a
year, taking most marketing employees with them, and encourages their
employees to be happy, well-rounded individuals.
I have decided to become a teacher because it makes me happy and I know it's
the right thing for me to do. I will miss the people here at IPG very much -
many of them have become close friends and the company is like a family.
My apartment is also available. Prime real estate location in Lincoln Park,
only three "L" train (our above-ground subway) stops from work (Brown/Purple
Fullerton stop to the Brown/Purple Chicago stop). $600/month - including
utilities (almost unheard of for the size and location of this apartment).
Parking available (a rarity) for an extra $50/month. Ground unit in a house,
washer and drier in the building, nice yard with grape arbor and pine trees,
close as close can be to shopping, groceries, yummy restaurants, and bars.
Two blocks away from Kingston Mines, one of the most famous blues bars in
Chicago. Very kind neighbors and laid-back landlords. Contact me by email if
