Of course newspaper jobs are quite scarce nowadays what with new technology and the depressing economy, but isn't only for newspaper jobs. You can also find jobs for online media, non-profits, TV, radio, and much more. Plenty of professional writing, editing and desktop publishing jobs can be found here. Most jobs listed here are in the United States, but there are sometimes listing for other countries.

The Write Jobs
This site tends to focus on media publishing employment, but it also has links to technical and medical writing jobs. This site also has links to other resources for writers, including advice from professionals. The Write Jobs is part of a network that also includes The Write News, a news site about writing, and Writers Write, a "one-stop resource about books, writing and publishing," according to the Web site.

Here you can find everything from ghostwriting gigs, to book writing, editing, copywriting, blogging, journalism and loads more. A number of the search links will take you to craigslist postings, but that's okay since you're getting a one-stop site for searching those craigslist writing jobs.

Catch up on the latest media news, find out about conferences, connect with other professionals, or, of course, do a job search. You'll find plenty of journalism jobs listed here, but also jobs at universities, advertising agencies and other places. Really, Media Bistro has so much to offer, it's more than just an employment search engine.

You can also read articles, or join a discussion to voice your opinion or just to have a nice chat.

This site is sort of a search engine for publishing jobs. You can use the search tool to find jobs listed in local media from all kinds of cities. I've had hit-and-miss success with using this site, but I'm not overly familiar with it, yet. One good thing about this site is it doesn't stick with just part of the publishing industry, but includes book publishers, online, newspapers and more.
