I’m not an expert in recruiting, and my suggestions are based on my experiences trying to hire staff in creative services, and feedback I’m getting from station managers in sales, creative services, and news about their challenges finding qualified candidates for their departments since I’ve become the manager of TVNewsCheck’s Media Job Center.
This past week was a busy one on TVNewsCheck’s Media Job Center, as Cox, NBC, Gray and Insite Wireless posted ads for openings in sales, news, marketing and engineering in Chicago, San Diego, Columbia, Boston and New York, and one opening where you can live anywhere you want.
Meredith Corp.’s Local Media Group and its NBC affiliate in Nashville, WSMV, need a regional accounting manager.
There are three new jobs posted to TVNewsCheck’s MediaJobCenter for a COO/VP in San Francisco, an account executive in Des Moines, Iowa, and a general manager for two Fox stations in Panama City, Fla., and Dothan, Ala.
The new openings are in Washington, DC, Rochester and Charlotte for a multimedia journalist and photojournalist, an assignment editor and director of sales.
WTXL in Tallahassee, Florida, is looking for a marketing and branding boss to oversee the brand image strategy and execution of the station. Living in Tallahassee is very affordable and you’re just 22 just from the emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Great opportunity in a great place.
New media jobs posted are from Cox, Scripps, Sinclair and Premion, a division of Tegna, for openings in engineering, research, creative services and sales.
