Journalism Job Boards/Newsletters

The journalism jobs market is constantly evolving. You should check the employment opportunities posted on the websites of media companies, which may be more useful than general job listing sites. However, the journalism community has a number of unique resources to help connect people with opportunities in the industry. Here are a few that our members have found helpful. Make sure to check for “remote” as a location, both when searching and when scanning listings. For example, some newsletters list opportunities by city/region and place all “remote” jobs at the bottom. Occasionally, opportunities are listed in other major markets but say that they can be performed remotely or in a Los Angeles bureau. Newsletters will often note when alternate locations are allowed, so even if you don’t want to click through every listing, you can sometimes just scan the sections for New York, Washington D.C. and San Francisco.
