A few good job resources

Ah, it's that time of year ... when soon-to-be graduates begin looking for full-time work. The Blog knows you will first want to consult the SND Job Bank because it's the top place for visual journalism jobs (and there are some good gigs out there right now, folks), but we also give you a few other places to pound the online pavement:
  1. CubReporters.org, a site for college and early-career journalists, isn't a bad resource for internship listings, jobs leads, interview tips, and the like.
  2. JournalismJobs.com has a wide variety of listings in newspapers, magazines, online, as well as TV, radio and academic posts. The big media companies all post here.
  3. Newsroomjobs.com has lots of professional opportunities, though some are clearly for people with experience or at least a few great internships.
  4. LinkedIn makes a lot of sense as a networking source, and the job listings there have the advantage of being connected to actual people your shared connections might know.
  5. MediaBistro has also become a good resource for jobs and networking. You will need to register for some of this site's best features.
  6. UC Berkeley does a good job of keeping its job board current.
  7. VisualEditors keeps a job board, with a lot of SND overlap.
  8. Poynter's Career Center does some very helpful articles and has recently picked up some steam at bolstering its ad base since launching early this year.
Get out there and get a journalism job: The profession needs you!
