With graduation right around the corner, a lot of us have begun to embark on the job hunt. This post will [hopefully] be helpful to anyone looking for a job in non-profits, writing, editing, marketing/PR, and/or journalism.
I’ve compiled a list of job websites that I’ve found so far and have included a short description of each one and whether or not they are worth a damn.
Non-profits (big thanks to Elizabeth)
- Idealist.org – Customize your job search in many different ways.
- OpportunityKnocks.org – Select multiple job targets and keep your search as narrow or broad as you like.
- Philanthropy.com – Narrow your search by field and position.
Jobs and Internships
- Ed2010.com – This is my favorite for editorial jobs, internships and freelance jobs. They tend to have the coolest magazines like Inked and Interview.
- Mediabistro.com – Great for jobs in Marketing and PR, as well as writing.
- Studentcentral.com – This is SCAD’s Job Magnet Web site. Allows you to narrow your search in many different ways. I found an internship on this one that led to my first publication!
- WashingtonPost.com – This one is site specific, but very good if you’re looking for jobs in the D.C. area.
- Monster.com – Don’t forget about this guy!
- Yahoo Jobs
- Craigslist.com – Of course. It’s a great idea to look for jobs in the cities you want to live in.
- International Reporting Project – The IRP Fellowships allow U.S. journalists to do original, in-depth reporting projects overseas.
- USAJobs.com – This one’s great if you want to work for the man.
It’s also a good idea to look at the newspapers’ Web sites of cities you want to live in. Of course, these are just a jumping-off point to get you started. I want to share the love because we’re all in the same boat right now.
