Looking for a Job

This post is mainly directed to my readers in the greater Nashville area...

I am looking for a job.

If you know of something, would you be so kind as to get in touch with me about it?

Most of my experience has been as an Executive Assistant to the owner of a small business. I'm not against remaining in the administrative field, but I would want a position that involves a bit more than just paper pushing. I feel capable of taking on more responsibility.

I have a degree in journalism, and I'd certainly love to use it. This personal blog is definitely not something that I focus on as much as I would if I were being paid to write and/or edit, so I hope this won't really be used as an example of my work. I do the blog just for fun and not to show any evidence of what I can do in terms of writing and/or editing. With that being said, I'd love any kind of position where I spend time writing and/or editing. :)

I also found that I LOVE event planning when I planned a 5K for a local non-profit. This opened my eyes to the possibility of a job where I plan events.

I also feel drawn to the idea of working for a non-profit.

If you know of something, please let me know!

Once I find a job and know my income, I'm also going to be looking for a new place to live in Nashville. Feel free to let me know if you know of any good places with affordable rent for me and my cat.

Check out cnm.org. The site lists a lot of non-profit jobs in Nashville. Long story short, my husband works for a major non-profit in the Kansas City area. We moved to Nashville for six months a few years ago and he found the position in Nashviile on this website.

We still check out the website, just in case something comes available so we can go back to Nashville. Our house did not sell the first time. Bummer.

Good luck with your search!

Hey there! Check out idealist.org for nonprofit jobs. I'm in nonprofit event management here in Boston...it's a tough job, but easier to get into if you start as a Development Assistant/Associate in a nonprofit! That's definitely something you could get into with excellent organization/writing skills, and a degree in journalism!!
Good luck!
