Tonight I received the following comment:
"I have a question. Where is a good place to go to look for journalism jobs - the few there are? I know about journalismjobs.com and MPA. Are there any other good places to look? Jim, since you have a lot of followers here who are looking for work, maybe a post suggesting some places to look? That would be great for everyone."
The temptation for many will be to dismiss this comment and encourage this person to consider a career at Applebee's, but if you know some way to help or can offer some direction to this person it might help more than just one person.
I haven't been looking for journalism work, frankly that fired has been extinguished, but my first bit of advice would be to look outside of Michigan, if possible. The market here for anything, especially newspapers, is poor and will be for a long, long time. But journalism now covers more than just newspapers, so if you have a suggestion, please leave one.
