My journalism career began in 2015 when I began my master’s in journalism at the University of Missouri. Hundreds of applications and cover letters later, I’ve worked at Bloomberg News, FiveThirtyEight, the Texas Tribune, The Guardian and most recently The Wall Street Journal. So I know a thing or two about grinding my way up the career ladder.
I started Inside The Newsroom in 2018 and built the newsletter around various full-time jobs. When WSJ told me I had to shut down ITN if I wanted to continue working for them, I refused. Which means the shackles are off and all of my attention is on breaking down the barriers to enter the media industry.
You can read all about that here.
What Are People Saying?
I hate it when people talk about me, unless it’s when Inside The Newsroom has helped get them a job…
“Inside The Newsroom’s job board is the most comprehensive I've seen by far, and received two internship offers because of the board! I anticipate resubscribing after my internship ends and I start the post-graduation job hunt.” — Skye Witley, intern at NBC Washington
“I've really enjoyed following the newsletter, and the job board has been incredibly helpful for me in my job search. Once I read your letter about leaving the WSJ, I wanted to see what ways we as subscribers would be able to help and grow Inside The Newsroom. I think what you and your team have put together is awesome, so I'd like to help in any way I can.” — Chris Butler, journalism student at Northeastern University
“I did want to mention that I have really enjoyed your newsletter over the last few months - you do an excellent job of not just curating jobs and internships, but also putting together the global news roundups each week. I've found them really great for staying informed on what's going on around the world, including in countries I don't typically keep an eye on.” — Christie Moffat, real estate reporter at S&P Global
“I was unemployed and looking for journalism jobs for eight months, and was spending literal hours every week combing through Twitter posts, job boards, and career pages — just to find listings that were weeks or months old, or to realize I had missed a job I would have liked to apply for because I forgot to check a certain website. Subscribing to Inside the Newsroom gave me back those hours of frustration and fruitless searching and I ended up landing several interviews after I applied to jobs I found on the board. Plus, Daniel puts his money where his mouth is in trying to keep unpaid internships off the board and responding to emails when you have a question or suggestion! Totally worth the money for journalism job-searchers.” — Kirstyn Brendlen, reporter at Brooklyn Paper
“After graduating from journalism school, my friends and I were all on the job hunt. One of the biggest stresses was simply finding jobs to apply to. Inside The Newsroom newsletter eliminated that stress for us. Checking in every week to see new jobs helped us see the possibilities in the industry and kept me motivated in my job hunt. A subscription is worth every penny!” — Catie Cheshire, Reporting Fellow at Denver Westword
“Just a few weeks after subscribing for the job board, I was offered my dream job writing about reality TV. You might not think it at the time, but joining this newsletter could change your life. Thank you so much, Daniel.” — Celine Byford, Chief Staff Writer at Reality Tidbit
“Inside the Newsroom has impacted me massively over the past year. I just landed a full-time role I found on the job board, right out of college. This is a listing I certainly would have missed through more traditional job search means, but it wound up being a perfect fit. I didn't go to a big journalism school and started with no connections, so I've found the industry as a whole incredibly difficult to navigate. Job hunting aside, your thoughtful note on why you had to leave the Wall Street Journal shed light on issues I've noticed are incredibly common across publications.” — Camilla Forte, Web and Photo Producer at The Hechinger Report
“After reading your post about leaving WSJ, I had to subscribe. Thanks for all you do!, it’s so critical to our field.” — Eric Falquero, Editor at Street Sense Media
“I just read this newsletter and wanted to send you my support! The job board you manage is incredible and I cannot think of a better place to look for work!” — Caterina Bernardi, Freelance Photographer
“Inside the Newsroom’s job board makes the job hunt during these strange times, dare I say, more enjoyable? Instead of wasting time visiting the career pages for individual publications, you can find a list of current openings, along with links to the place to apply and when the job was posted. It's a welcomed reprieve in what's been a difficult time for many people in our industry. Thank you, Daniel!” — Anna (last name anonymous as she’s still on the job hunt)
“After resubscribing to your service I found a good tip that led to a promising job interview. I’m grateful Inside The Newsroom exists and will be recommending it to friends and colleagues who are also looking to make a change.” — Chris (last name anonymous as he’s in the process of changing jobs)
“For many journalists and everyone in new media seeking work in a newsroom, it’s a great resource for a great price.” — Bill Ramsey, Independent Graphic Designer
“As an independent journalist, I find Inside the Newsroom extremely valuable in that postings are easily accessible and detailed. Daniel’s dedication to readers is evident through his meticulous planning and via the newsletter’s straightforward, no-nonsense design.” — Amanda Florian, Independent Journalist
I work in local news, whose newsrooms don't put many resources into promoting their positions. ITN became my one-stop job search. I saw a posting for a little-known news startup near me in San Francisco called Here/Say Media and, entirely to it being included on ITN, I was among the first applicants. I’m so excited to start my new position and extremely grateful to Daniel and for jumpstarting my next opportunity. — Sarah Wright
Inside the Newsroom's job board was instrumental in helping me find a full-time role in media (which is notoriously difficult to do)! I can't thank Dan enough for creating this valuable resource and educating me about current events around the world while I job hunted. I highly recommend job seekers and news junkies alike subscribe. — Rebecca Long, freelance writer and editor
