More job sites, words of support

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): -- California Chicano News Media Association; collection of jobs in various media in California and elsewhere, with the board open to nonmembers -- listings for editors of various types; run by McMurry, a custom publisher in Phoenix -- the Poynter Institute for Media Studies now offers job listings --, job board in nonprofit sector offers many positions for writers, editors, content producers -- the California Society of Newspaper Editors maintains a job board -- 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 -- 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.

Take care,
Holly Ocasio Rizzo
San Clemente, Calif.
