Tell me about the community.
Reel Media Group’s exclusive online community is a place for journalists and industry experts alike. This is in the beginning stages but think Facebook meets LinkedIn for journalists. Our goal is to give you the tools for a long, fulfilling career in broadcasting. Whether it’s job alerts, online workshops or access to our Job Program – a membership is beneficial in many ways for journalists seeking out advice from professionals, exclusive professional development workshops and job leads. Our online community provides a place for industry experts looking for guest opportunities as well. Once you become a member you are eligible for our job catalyst program – a job accelerator and mentorship program for reporters, producers and digital journalists.
What is the Job Catalyst Program?
Reel Media Group’s Job Program is unlike any other journalism job search engine out there. We don’t only find the jobs, we help place and support you through the process. Our Job Catalyst Program is a service available to all-access members. Our RMG job coordinators work with over 200 news directors on a daily basis to help place talent into jobs and our coaches provide support, guidance and direction to participants. As part of the program, we don’t only ease the stress of your job search, we mentor you along the way. Whether it is copyediting your resume, helping you write an effective and compelling cover letter or calling one of our coaches to do 1-1 interview prep – our team of talent coaches, reporters and producers have all been in your shoes and have landed jobs. What’s most remarkable about the program is the success rate. The majority of members who enter their reel into the program find jobs in less than three months.
