HUGE job and internship listing
Multimedia position at Dallas Morning News
Thursday, April 27, 2006
Lorraine Branham says "steal this job!"
If you haven't found a job yet, here's a good possibility. Starting in late May, there will be TWO openings for general assignment reporters at the Mexico Missouri Ledger. It's small but it's a daily. I am told by an alum that it is " great opportunity for an upcoming May grad or any other young and ambitious reporter. He says it offers its writers the chance to write about anything and everything that happens in Audrain County with a high degree of independence. Mexico is about a 40 minute drive northeast of Columbia, and the Ledger's circulation is around 10,000.
If anyone is interested, please e-mail Managing Editor Janeen Sims at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at

From Dr. Sylvie
From: Claire Harlin
Subject: internship opp.
To: George Sylvie
Hi Dr. Sylvie,
I am still on your mailing list from being enrolled in your class last semester and have enjoyed getting e-mails regarding job and internship opportunities. I have an opportunity I was hoping you could help me with by sending to your list of current and former students. I am a Journalism Senior and have been working as the assistant editor of a new publication to start in Austin June 2. It's called the Fugitive Post and will focus on crime-related issues. More can be found out about the semi-weekly
publication at www.thefugitivepost.com. We are looking for reporters and photographers that will start out as volunteer for the first two issues and can be eligible for a salary after that. I think it is a great opportunity to help get a publication off the ground, and working with the very talented staff involved in this publication has been incredibly fulfilling for me... Let me know if you would be willing to help recruit employees from the J-school and I can send you a better "ad" with more information.
Thanks a bunch!

Job opp from Dr. Jensen via Dr. Sylvie
Below is a message from an MA grad of ours, Rick Mercier. He's editing the editorial and book pages at the Anniston Star in Alabama. Some of you may know the paper; it has a long reputation for aggressive reporting and has been a starter paper for lots of good reporters.
He received this message from: email@example.com
We're losing reporters left and right here at The Star. Got any smart students who'll be graduating and looking for a job come May? If so, encourage them to apply here; they'll earn peanuts, but the cost of living is low and they'll get some good experience and have the freedom to go out and do tough, muckraking journalism.
