Being a graduating senior ,(Gasp! Graduation is less than two months away!) I have already begun the search for jobs, which I honestly should have started months ago. However, thanks to amazing professors such as Kathe Lehman-Meyer, I feel a lot better as to what my strengths are and how to find the career and future that I want for myself.
I’ve used various research tools and websites to help dictate where I want to be, and one of the beneficial websites I learned about at a previous internship at a Fox affiliate news station is called www.tvjobs.com. Obviously by it’s title, this website focuses on jobs in the television, cable, and even radio industry all over the nation. However, I have used it to take advantage of it’s resources in finding schools, fellowships, and scholarships in the journalism industry (as shown in the left corner).
Another job search website that I have found is extremely basic but helpful, is indeed.com. I came across this website after helping my older sister find a specific job, and I found that this website is extremely easy to use. Unlike other job search websites, this website does not require a profile to be made to search for jobs.
My final website that has helped me is gradschools.com. I have gone back and forth on the decision whether to go to graduate school or not, and websites like these help make the process easier. Not only does it provide good matches based on location, cost, and area of study, but they also have a number of resources available to assist you in the application process.
Of course, there are also countless other websites for these industries, but these are websites I use frequently and would recommend highly to others.
