Job advice from National SPJ

Dear Friends,

Last month I wrote that I would inform you of several resources for finding
internships, jobs and scholarships. I hope you find this useful. If you have
any additions, feel free to e-mail me at aguribarri@spj.org, or message the
listserv directly at studentsofspj@yahoogroups.com

It is a pleasure to serve you. Stay in touch about your successes.

Yours,

Adrian G. Uribarri
National Campus Representative

The Careers in Newspapers page comes to you from the American Society of Newspaper Editors, an elite group of the
nation's press leaders. It has a CareerBank, internship search, ASNE's job
fair schedule and advice articles. A great opportunity for students is
working for The ASNE Reporter, which runs during the April convention and gets you face time with the movers and
shakers.

Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism has an excellent Career
Services
page. The advice resources are all top-notch, but among the most unique is Arlene Morgan's A-List Newspapers, a review of the former recruiter's favorite places to work. With links and insightful background information, the list goes beyond statistics and into
the heart of what matters: quality.

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting Jobline is a must-visit for anyone interested in public journalism. TV, radio and
business-side positions can be sorted by state, and links to other public
radio providers' job sites are right next to the general listings.

Among the richest Web sites for career and internship advice is The Journalist's Road to Success,
published by the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund. My favorite section is Jobs, Internships, Scholarships & Groups, where you can find an exhaustive list of work and scholarship programs. If you're a minority looking for internships, this site is especially helpful.

The Gannett News Job Opportunities page lists lots of jobs in lots of cities for the most profitable company in newspapers. If you don't mind working for a shareholder-centric, bottom-line company, go here. Gannett's flagship publication is the circulation-leading USA Today.

If there's one Web site recruiters go to when they're looking to post a job,
it's JournalismJobs.com. But the site is
good for more than job listings. You can find links to
internships, fellowships, career articles and media salaries. It's kind of a one-stop
shop for job-hunting, job-switching and job-maintaining.

JournalismNext.com is a lot like
JournalismJobs.com, but it has a strong minority angle and lacks some of the
useful articles of the larger site. If you want to get the most out of this
site, you have to register (free). Visit it often if only for the front-page
listings--often for business reporting and editing positions.

So you've got a few extra bucks and a clear weekend. What do you do but
study journalism? If you fancy the plan, visit
JournalismTraining.org,
a Web site published by ours truly, the Society of Professional Journalists. It's a comprehensive listing of seminars and courses pros tend to love. Get a head start on 'em and you'll impress recruiters.

If the legend of the "Missouri Mafia" is true, you've got competition in the
well-connected Journalism Career Center of the University of Missouri-Columbia's highly ranked School
of Journalism. Graduates of this program often go right back to their alma mater for future hires, and the job list is free range if you can crack the close-knit network.

The New York Times Company is sorta possessive about its jobs listings, so
if you're looking to work at the Times, Boston Globe or one of the company's
regional newspapers, you're going to want to look at its Job Search. It's pretty useful: You can sort jobs by specialty, state, organization or just type in keywords. Once you're in, you can submit your resume online and cross your fingers.

Journalism at New York University's Internship Listing is about as complete as they come. I'm not sure who they hired to get all these listings, but someone did a good job. Each internship has its own info link and is listed according to the most crucial of criteria: the deadline.

Well, Gannett did one at least one thing right for journalism--aside from
buying my college's auditorium: host Joe Grimm's Newspaper
JobsPage. Columbia's Arlene Morgan herself calls Grimm the "best recruiter in the newspaper business," and for good reason. Grimm has compiled what is simply the most thoughtful, useful and personal diary of how good journalists get jobs. If you want to understand recruiters and get them to love you, do not pass this up.

The National Diversity Newspaper Job Bank is a
free, registration-only list put out by Morris Communications, specifically
its Florida Times-Union, and the Newspaper Association of America. It's an
established go-to, but the catch is you must submit a resume to surf the
boards (forgive the pun).

The Poynter Insitute is the non-profit home of Romenesko, the scholarly arm of the St. Petersburg Times and the back-to-school creme
of mid-careerists. If you want to know what's up in the journalism world, or
what's next, visit its home page often. If you want
a long list of cool resources, check out its Journalism Job
Links
.

TVandRadioJobs.com is a specialized job board for broadcasters. It offers primarily commercial opportunities, so go back to the CPB Jobline if you're interested in low frequencies.

The University of California-Berkeley's got a J-Jobs board similar to
Missouri's. It's current and varied, ranging from professional opportunities on both coasts to academic positions at a bunch of universities--not that we're planning on a campus return just yet.
