We report, you decide. The #1 name in cable news. For those who aren’t familiar with these slogans, we’re talking about Fox News. We know people tend to love or hate Fox, often dependent on political views. We’re not trying to get involved in any controversy, we’re just trying to tell you where great opportunities for new college grads are. To this date our post on entry-level jobs at CNN has been our most popular. Obviously there are a lot of people interested in journalism, television, and production, and Fox News has a multitude of entry-level opportunities in these fields.
Fox News doesn’t appear to have a careers site, they just have a page (in the same format as their news stories) with a list of job openings and descriptions. Opportunities are divided into three sections: FoxNews.com, Fox News Channel, and Fox News Radio. The job descriptions are short, clear, and to the point. They don’t do a great job of selling the reader on working for Fox News, but they get the point across about who should apply. In regards to the jobs that are appropriate for new college grads, they explicitly state what kind of experience they want. Many of the jobs require a Bachelor’s Degree and internship experience. That’s what we’re talking about!
Here are the jobs that we think you should take a closer look at:
FoxNews.com: Web Producer – Viewer Services, Web Show Page Producer, Senior Web Designer, Account Coordinator – Digital Media Sales, Ad Traffic Coordinator, Quality Assurance Analyst (User Feedback)
Fox News Channel: Junior Payroll Coordinator, Junior Accountant, Junior Financial Analyst, Newsgathering Producer – Business News, Digital Business Development Coordinator – Internet, Freelance Crawl Writer, Freelance Researcher – Part-Time, Freelance Camera Operator
Fox News Radio: Overnight Production Assistant – Fox News Radio
After you take a look at the job descriptions, you can apply by sending a resume and cover letter to:
FOX News Channel
Dept. of Human Resources
1211 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10036
We would like to see more career related information than just job listings, but we’re impressed that Fox News has so many jobs at the entry-level and that they’re so straightforward about what experience is needed for each job.
Note: On April 24th we revisited entry-level jobs at Fox News.
