J-schoolers' guide p.18

By: Editorial Staff Recent journalism school graduates looking for that first big break into news will get some extra help next month when Editor & Publisher Co. launches a biannual guide to entry-level and early-experience jobs.
The new publication, "Newspapers Take You Places ? The Editor & Publisher Guide to the Best Jobs to Start Your Career" will debut on May 1 as a free supplement to the Editor & Publisher weekly magazine and on the E&P Web site: www.mediainfo.com. The guide, which also will be sent free to college career offices and placement bureaus, will feature only entry-level job listings, along with helpful information about job hunting, internships, and training advice.
Those seeking jobs also will be able to post ads and, on the Web version, link recruiters to their r?sum? or personal Web site.
"Our help wanted classified pages are the most popular and effective recruiting ads in the industry," says Colin Phillips, publisher of E&P. "This project expands the value of our service as a reliable resource for recruiters and future employees of the news world."
Career opportunities available in the guide include the traditional newsroom roles of reporter, writer, editor, and photographer, along with newer online positions and jobs in marketing, circulation, advertising, graphic design, business, production, distribution, public relations, human resources, and archives.
To receive a copy of the guide, write to: H. Preuss, 11 W. 19th St., 10th floor, NY, NY 10011-4234, or hazelp@mediainfo.com. Anyone seeking to place a "position wanted" ad should call 212-675-4380, ext. 171.
