Share your journalism job search experiences

I'm looking for quotes from young journalists.

I'm writing a column for the young journalists section of Quill on the importance of networking in the job search.

As with virtually every field, many journalism job openings don't seem to be advertised. I know of one editor, for example, who said she won't post jobs on popular websites because she doesn't want to have to sort through hundreds of resumes. So, the only way to find out about some jobs is through word-of-mouth: by attending conferences, keeping in touch with editors, getting heads-ups from friends at other media outlets when a co-worker leaves (and they'll probably fill the position), etc.

Do you have any comments, anecdotes or experiences to share relating to this? If so, please e-mail me ASAP at mark@cubreporters.org.

Thanks.
