Here's a nice note from Holly Ocasio Rizzo, former Chron Home & Garden editor and North Bay Friday editor. Thanks, Holly:
Here are some sites that may help job seekers (Ed note: I will also add these links to the master post, which you can find HERE):
www.ccnma.org -- California Chicano News Media Association; collection of jobs in various media in California and elsewhere, with the board open to nonmembers
http://jobs.copyeditor.com/home/index.cfm?site_id=502 -- listings for editors of various types; run by McMurry, a custom publisher in Phoenix
http://careers.poynter.org/search/browse/ -- the Poynter Institute for Media Studies now offers job listings
www.idealist.org -- Idealist.org, job board in nonprofit sector offers many positions for writers, editors, content producers
www.csne.org -- the California Society of Newspaper Editors maintains a job board
www.cnpa.com -- the California Newspaper Publishers Association lists jobs in the CNPA Bulletin
If anybody's inclined, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists will hold its annual conference June 13-16 in San Jose -- www.nahj.org for information. The conference traditionally includes a large job fair, and it's open to all journalists.
For what it's worth, the world is very good out here. I now freelance while also teaching feature writing at the Cal State Fullerton. There's plenty of work out here for anyone with skill, contacts and a good business head who starts a freelance writing/editing business -- and they'll never get laid off again.
Hang in there -- better days ahead.
