Editor & Publisher, Poynter Institute and America’s Newspapers Launch Media Job Board

New site to be the most comprehensive one stop website for job seekers and recruiters in the media industry


Editor & Publisher (E&P), the Poynter Institute and America's Newspapers have partnered to launch the Media Job Board (http://mediajobboard.com), serving the media industry with cutting-edge job-matching technology and targeted network distribution powered by PandoLogic. Job seekers can connect with Media Staffing Network (MSN), a totally "media-focused" staffing company, to help them make the next move in their careers.

Employers who post jobs on the new Media Job Board receive unprecedented reach to top media professionals across many websites and on TheJobNetwork™, the largest recruitment ad network of job sites in North America.

Media Job Board job postings on TheJobNetwork™ reach millions of active and passive job seekers monthly across the internet on local, niche and vertical job sites, as well as on leading aggregator sites and social networks. To ensure maximum qualified responses, jobs posted on the Media Job Board are automatically optimized, distributed and monitored as part of targeted ad campaigns. This targeted distribution produces higher rankings in search results on search engines and paid job sites. The new site allows hiring managers to save valuable time and effort with Real-Time Job Matching™, which automatically screens, grades, and ranks applicants and returns qualified passive job seeker matches in real-time from the site’s resume database.

Through this new partnership, job postings appear on the website at www.mediajobboard.com, in Editor & Publisher magazine and on Poynter’s website.

“Our first mission in developing the new Media Job Board was to help the many talented professionals from all sectors of our industry to have the best vehicle possible to seek and find the right position. That is why we are committed to offering free resume posting and new state-of-the-art job matching to anyone, employed or not,” said E&P Publisher Mike Blinder. “I love our partnership with PandoLogic, who provides the technology that helps our employers put their openings in front of the right candidates while searching hundreds of platforms that constantly ‘hunt’ for our job seekers.”

“The ability to find the right people is a critical part of our members’ success," stated America’s Newspapers CEO Dean Ridings. “I am glad that we were able to parter with industry leaders Editor & Publisher and The Poynter Institute that can facilitate our members in finding the best talent and access tools to make the process more efficient.”

The Media Job Board’s Total Talent Reach™ plan is the ideal option for employers, who no longer need to worry about where to post jobs to get the best applicants. Total Talent Reach™ transforms job postings into fully automated ad distribution campaigns that target relevant job seekers across hundreds of leading national, industry-specific and local job sites. Our job-level campaign management technology works around the clock to make sure your ad is getting the maximum response possible so you can hire faster with much less effort, cost and time.

MSN CEO Laurie Kahn remarked, "Our Media Staffing Network adds helpful services to enhance the experience for both the job seekers and employers looking to hire with various levels of assistance ranging from creating more targeted job descriptions and resumes to actual live coaching, something that other boards do not offer. We are thrilled to be a partner with the Media Job Board. We know media, so we can offer the expertise needed to land the right job or hire the perfect person."

“This new journalism job board serves both journalists, as well as ad and marketing teams. In an age when media teams from varied backgrounds are working so closely together to solve the industry's revenue challenges, this site will open new doors for many,” said Wendy Wallace, Poynter’s director of advancement.

The Media Job Board also offers job seekers an enhanced user experience driven by the Real-Time Job Matching™ service, which instantly matches job seekers to open postings based on their skill sets, experience and preferences - eliminating the need for tedious keyword searching and browsing through hundreds of irrelevant job postings. Since the Media Job Board is part of TheJobNetwork™, job seekers also have access to job matches from any of their thousands of network sites. Job seekers who register on the Media Job Board can view relevant job matches and apply them in real-time from their online account.



About Editor & Publisher 

Editor & Publisher (E&P) is the authoritative voice of #NewsPublishing. E&P's roots began in 1884 when The Journalist was first published to serve the U.S. newspaper industry. The Editor & Publisher: A Journal for Newspaper Makers itself was founded in 1901, and in 1907 it merged with The Journalist. Later Editor & Publisher acquired Newspaperdom, a trade journal for the newspaper industry that started in 1892, and then in 1927 E&P merged with another trade paper, The Fourth Estate, to become what is now known as today’s Editor & Publisher magazine. The Nielsen Company purchased E&P in 1999. In 2010, The Duncan McIntosh Company purchased E&P from Nielsen, which had shuttered the magazine a month before selling. The Duncan McIntosh Company then began republishing E&P.  In September 2019, E&P was purchased by the Curated Experiences Group which appointed industry veteran Mike Blinder as its publisher. Since then, E&P magazine has added new digital services, products and platforms as it continues to grow.
