Word around Seattle is that Jobster CEO Jason Goldberg is headed out of the troubled job-search website — for parts east. Sources say that Goldberg's husband, Thomas, has been telling friends of their upcoming move to New York City and, on his last day at Seattle advertising firm Wong Doody, sent out a company-wide goodbye email indicating that he was leaving for geographical reasons, not personal or professional ones. Goldberg glosses over the rumor, telling us "My husband Thomas is applying to graduate-school programs in a number of cities. We currently have no plans to move. And no, I am not leaving Jobster." Though he might be mistaken on that last part. We've heard that the VC community in Seattle is abuzz about the Jobster board's stealth search to replace him. Why is the CEO always the last to know?
