Iomega Wants You!

Are you a "proven leader in quality and service"? Are you a "seasoned, mature individual of proven competence"? If so, Iomega (NYSE: IOM) is looking for you. Seriously, it is. Check out page B13 in today's Wall Street Journal. The computer storage technology company is advertising to fill Kim Edwards' old position -- chief executive officer. Some think Kim's shoes are tough ones to fill. Others think there's room for improvement.

Here's the deal, send us your application in the form of a message board post. Answer this question: What you would do as CEO to turn Iomega around?

What's in it for you? The writer of the best post, selected by us, will receive a $2,000 brokerage account from Web Street Securities. Two other lucky winners will receive a generous assortment of FoolMart stuff. So start posting candidates.
