We are excited about our Meetup from last night with Jackie Riley, vice-president at Lynne Palmer Executive Recruitment In., a NYC search firm.

A crowd of local journalists attended to hear Jackie reveal what she is seeing in the journalism employment market.

Tips & Advice from Jackie:

1) Content is king. Employers are looking for top-shelf, grade A content. If you’re a journalist, employers only want those who are most attentive to detail and experienced.

2) You need to be the right fit. Are you applying to a company that you’re meant for? Don’t throw your resume at every opportunity. The more consideration you give into each position, the better your chances are of being selected for an interview.

3) The jobs are out there. According to Jackie there hasn’t been a slow down in her recruiting business.

Thank you to Jackie for coming out to share her knowledge of the market!
