West Coast Media Jobs: With open roles at OneCare Media, KVAL, Seattle Times & more!
If you’re looking for a job, leave a comment about what you’re looking for on our Spring Gig Seekers Thread. It’s open to everyone; you don’t need to be a subscriber or based on the West Coast to participate.
Check out talented journalists like…
Matthew Royer, a “student journalist who's currently the News Editor for the LA Press Club's College Newspaper of the Year, The Valley Star…I have experience with reporting, copyediting, page design, graphic design, social media, and online web-work. I'm seeking journalism internships and freelance work either remote or in the Greater Los Angeles Area.” (more info)
The Gig Seekers thread is sent out quarterly on the 15th day of January, April, July, and October.
Sorry for the lack of content on this front! It’s been a busy winter/spring teaching, closing a union contract, and dealing with some other work stuff. But I promise this feature will be back soon!
