Question by Taryn: Entry-level journalism jobs in DC metro area?
After monitoring sites like JournalismJobs.com and MediaBistro.com, I’ve noticed that the overwhelming majority of the listings are for upper-level positions.
I have four years of political reporting internship experience, and I’d like to work in DC now that I’ve graduated. Any tips on where else I should be looking to find entry-level media jobs?
Suggestions very much welcome – thanks!
Some clarifications: I’m specifically referring to print/online media jobs, and I’m not necessarily looking to break into a huge publication like Politico or WaPo – I know that there are a lot of smaller media options in the area. Thanks!

Suprising that you want to go into that field as everyone says journalism is dying. But I say go back to the place you interned and ask for a reporter job. Also, contact your journalism professors to see if there’s a spot for you where they previously worked. Good Luck!
