Jobs in the new journalism

I compiled this selection of three real, current job announcements as a snapshot of what’s happening in our field:

KGTV, the ABC affiliate in San Diego, is looking for a “convergence manager” to work with “the news director and Web managing editor to improve the quality and relevance of coverage on air, online and on mobile, and to increase new media skills and participation in the newsroom.”

National Public Radio (NPR.org) is looking for “a creative video producer and filmmaker” who will “help develop the stories and strategy that translate NPR’s signature style of in-depth storytelling and journalism to a new medium…. Requires five years television and/or professional video experience in a news or documentary setting.”

The New York Times online needs “a journalist with a portfolio of long-form audio storytelling” who will produce multimedia for both news and features sections. Experience: At least three years producing audio features “for broadcast on air or on the Web.”

These job announcements were easy to find — there are 131 online journalism jobs listed right now at JournalismJobs.com.

Tip for students: Read job listings in your field at least once a week, even years before you’re ready to apply. This is how you can figure out if you’re learning the right stuff!
