Jobs Of The Day: Seek Companies, Not Jobs

We’ve always heard you should seek out companies, not jobs, because once you get your foot in the door, you have a much better chance of proving yourself and getting the position you actually want. So put that into practice today because the OC Weekly has posted a non-journalism job on our board: they’re seeking a receptionist. This position says nothing about writing but we imagine for a patient and promising candidate this could be a back door into the editorial side….
