It’s summer (finally), and some of you may be looking for jobs. Congratulations to our new graduates! I remember how hard it was to find my first job after college. I applied for jobs at more than 50 news organizations but I wasn’t doing it the smart way. I wasn’t plugged into AAJA’s network.

If you or a friend of yours is hunting for work, here are some job listings recently posted to a leading job site for journalists. If you’ve heard of other job openings that aren’t listed here, please submit a comment with the job lead and we’ll make sure it gets posted.

If the employer asks how you heard about the job, please tell them “AAJA.” And if you GET the job, please consider making a donation to AAJA Seattle this year. Thanks!
