West Coast Media Jobs: With open roles at Reuters, San Jose Mercury News, Spectrum & 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…
James Raia: “As a 40+year reporter, I contribute sports, automotive, business and lifestyle articles to several publications. For the past seven years I have written a weekly automotive column (new car reviews and industry trends) for Bay Area News Group (San Jose Mercury News, East Bay Times.) I have edited/published the website since 2004...I am seeking additional outlets for my weekly new car review column. It's a general-interest review, 600-words, plus exterior and interior independent images, as needed. I am also a veteran new products reviewer, primarily with mainstream consumer goods.” (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!
