I was a dedicated college journalist, and I think that the skills I learned from that have been useful for a lot of my work since I graduated (I’m 27 now, and manage content for CEA).
You may be doing some or all this already, but I recommend:
Checking the 80,000 Hours job board regularly (there’s more variety in the positions available than people sometimes think)
Joining the EA Job Postings Facebook group
Following or reaching out to the Solutions Journalism Network. They aren’t formally EA-affiliated, but I’ve been in touch with a person who works there, and I think their mindset is a good fit for EA-aligned people who want to do journalism.
If you’d like to meet more people, here are some things to try (again, you may have done some already). The “meetings you’d like to arrange” thread dates back to March, but I’m trying to encourage people to keep using it, since new comments will appear on the Forum’s front page under “recent discussion” and people will keep visiting the post in the future.
If you want to chat with me about communications work in EA, you can schedule a time here.
Hi Aaron, thanks for your reply!
I regularly check the 80,000 hours and EA Facebook page job boards. I didn’t know about the Solutions Journalism Network though, which seems like as good of a resource I could hope for at the moment, so thank you for that.
If I have some unanswered specifics on EA communications I’ll be sure to schedule a time to talk to you.
