Twenty years of JobFile

I long ago lost track of how many hours I’ve devoted to this enterprise, but I remember the first JobFile very well.

 

You don’t think of time moving so quickly, or at least I don’t. In my mind, I’m 26 forever. But 20 years ago tonight, when I entered the first seven listings — that’s all there were the first week — Job File didn’t go out by Web. The World Wide Web was still months away from being opened to the public. Instead, it went by that very 1980s innovation, the fax machine. 

 

About a dozen people received it, all in college placement offices,  along with the two clubs for which I then, and still today, produce it — the Chicago Headline Club, which is the Chicago professional chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, and the Illinois News Broadcasters Association. I was on the board of both organizations (I’m still on INBA’s board and was president of both groups simultaneously in 1996-97, which   almost killed me, but that’s a story for another day) and they wanted me to do JobFile so that they could list some local 

openings in their newsletters, which were then delivered hard-copy on a monthly basis.  

 

Within a couple of months, the Headline Club opened a phone bank with five (count ’em!) extensions, to better communicate with the membership, and JobFile began to appear there, or at least seven of the latest jobs — all that would fit on my voice mail box. 

 

The long-disconnected phone number was 312-714-LIES,   something that was pointed out to us after it was in service for a while, and which gave us quite a few laughs. It all seems so quaint. The fax disappeared in about 1997, and the phone line hung on till about 2006.  There are some addresses I can still recite in my sleep because I read them on the phone message so often. 

 

There were always print, television, radio and public relations jobs, but journalism education was added early and online about three years in. The focus became regional by late ’97, and when I met my wife (then a journalism student) in 1999, I extended the listings to cover the Carolinas, because she attended the University of South Carolina. 

 

Today, JobFile usually runs a healthy 70 pages of agate each week, although it slimmed down to about 25 when the economy teetered on the edge of oblivion in 2008. Today, radio stations hire videographers, TV stations require 

reporters to write “A” Wire copy, only shorter for the Web, and “print” journalists had better be able to master those Dark Arts that used to be considered “broadcast.” If you can’t write both broadcast and AP style, shoot video and stills, edit copy/video/audio/everything, finding a job may be difficult.

 

And that’s what we’re still about here at JobFile. Finding people jobs. In the best of times, there have never been enough in this field, and let’s face it, I’m hard put to figure out when the good times start. The aura of Woodward and Bernstein disappeared long ago but those of us who have stuck it out know how important the First Amendment is.  

 

That’s one reason why I’ve spent a lot of my alleged spare time lately trying to organize an amicus brief for patch.com Shorewood (Ill.) editor Joe Hosey, who faces indefinite jail time and confiscatory fines if an appeals court refuses to overturn a judge’s contempt order.  And it’s not over a matter of national security, but details in a police report!  Look up Joe’s fight online at the SPJ, RTDNA, INBA, Headline Club and Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press Web sites, among others.

 

A few people have asked me how many more years I’m going to do this. I’m not sure, and I don’t see anyone waiting in the wings to take it over.  But for now, it’s my gift to you, because no one has ever made a cent, that I know of, from JobFile. Use it, spread the word, subscribe via the INBA Web site, and as the SPJ Code of Ethics advises us, seek the truth and report it.  In the end, that’s what this is all about.

Board Minutes – 09/2012

Chicago Headline Club

Board of Directors meeting

Fri. Sept. 9, 2012

President Aldon Loury called the meeting to order at 9:05 a.m.

Present: Alden, Hugh Delios, Dann Gire, Howard Dubin, Mary Wisniewski, Rob Elder, Kristen Schorsch, Steve Franklin, Angela Caputo, Odette Yousef, Aimee DeBat, Susan S. Stevens, Casey Bukro, and by phone, Beth Konrad, Flynn McRoberts and Rummana Hussain.

President’s report: Alden noted the SPJ convention comes up late this month and asked if anyone else is attending. He, Beth, Howard and Susan will go. Alden and Beth will get 35 percent off on registration, a discount SPJ offered for two people in our chapter.

Alden talked with Regional Director Liz Hansen, who each quarter contacts each chapter in Region 5 to find out how they are doing and offer suggestions. With the current membership push under way, Liz suggested we contact non-CHC affiliates across Illinois and college students. She said Vicki Katz in Springfield, a former regional director, might help recruit downstaters.

Minutes from last meeting: approved.

FOIA: Alden reported for absent FOIA VP Fernando Diaz that the FOIA site is a day or two away from going live. The developer has all the content. That the two of them met with our blogger to discuss content of the site. They want conversation, community-building, a weekly roundup, growing our own post based on what people have to say. Open to contributions! Contact Fernando. We need to market the new FOIA initiatives.

Programs: Odette said the election-prep panel program appears to have fallen through because political reporters could not be enlisted. Mary hopes to have a climate change program in January or February. Lolly Bowean said $1,580 has been contributed for Sunday’s race, and hopes to hit $2,000. Rob will put together Career Survival 101 for October, but needs a date and place. We will co-sponsor the Community Media Workshop’s Oct. 5 program on what the election means to black, Hispanic and ethnic groups.

Beth welcomed the idea of new partnerships, and said Loyola would be pleased to have us as co-sponsors of events. Several board members urged more partnerships. Boosts attendance for them and us.

Membership: Aimee reported for Rummana, who joined us later: She has been making lots of calls, having other people make calls. Rummana said all the Lisagor non-members have been contacted. Alden noted this month is the national membership drive. He has written a letter for Rummana to send to targeted journalists. Send Rummana your thoughts on how to build membership. Rummana would like to do an event. Beth suggested a good-bye to Aldon Pallasch and Steve Edwards, former board members, as a networking party and membership incentive. Rob suggested asking Lizzie to do social media, an area we have fallen down on.

Website: Aimee said Jon Seidel has been too involved in trials to do updates, but will shortly. Steve offered to help Jon. Mary offered again to do the JobFile, which has not been updated since Aug. 10 though it should be weekly and is probably the major reason people look at headlineclub.org.

Treasurer’s report: none.

Ethics AdviceLine: Casey reported Ilyce Glink has trimmed her proposal from $35,500 to $25,000 in response to our concerns and has discounted as much as she can. Her usual charge is $150 an hour; she is offering us $75. Her proposal includes marketing. Rob said he thought some things were overpriced and suggested bids be let. He and Casey will meet next week. Mary asked that action be taken at next month’s board meeting.

CHC Foundation: Susan said we raised about $1,100 at the annual Brownlee picnic-party despite rainy weather. Attendance was about 50. Howard and Susan were the only CHC board members to attend; both also are on the CHCF board. This was a great networking opportunity, as always.

Lovejoy Memorial: Susan said the Alton committee, despite our $500 contribution, has been unable to come up with enough funds to replace the stolen monument making the journalism martyr’s site a Sigma Delta Chi national landmark. Our money will go toward three roadside markers. Elijah Lovejoy was murdered and his presses destroyed 175 years ago.

Meeting adjourned at 10:35 a.m.

Next meeting: 9 a.m. Fri. Oct. 5 at Bloomberg.

Respectfully submitted,

Susan S. Stevens

Secretary

Board Minutes – 05/2012

Chicago Headline Club

Board of Directors meeting

May 11, 2012

President Stephen Franklin called the meeting to order at 9:15 a.m.

Present: Steve, Rob Elder, Kristen Schorsch, Odette Yousef, Alden Loury, Lolly Bowean, Aimee DeBat, Susan S. Stevens, Abdon Pallasch (by phone and then in person), and by phone, Howard Dubin, Fabiola Pomareda Garcia and Beth Konrad.

President’s report: Steve is getting better each day from his surgery. He said Lisagor was a stupendous event and Alden gave a great speech that really brought us together. About 339 people attended. Videos were great, making a speaker unnecessary. For next year, Rob suggests we just name the winners and put the finalists on the screen. 

May 25 at the Siskel Center, we will co-sponsor a documentary about attacks on Mexican journalists. More information will be in an eblast.

National high school journalism contest has asked us to judge. We will ask Anna Tarkov to handle.

Amy Lee will take over the JobFile from Fabiola, who is departing for Costa Rica.

Steve wants the website to include other journalism groups. Beth said she and Suzanne McBride can have two students.

Programs: Aimee has 16 RSVPs for the NATO session tomorrow. Odette has room for 40. She asks for a last-minute push on publicity. Students will be admitted free if they show IDs.

Membership: Susan for Rummana Hussain (at the Balfour trial) said CHC membership as of this morning totaled 330. That’s way down. The 48 who accepted free memberships at Lisagor last year are off the list. But we’ve lost more than them. Roughly a year ago, we had 401 members. The good news, and there is some, that we’ll grow by 32 when SPJ adds this year’s free Lisagor memberships.

However, we will still be down considerably. We all need to pitch in on winning new members and retaining old ones. It is not something the Membership VP can do all by herself. If any of you need more brochures, ask Aimee or me for them. I suggest that Rummana divide up the lapsed-member CHC list from SPJ among CHC board members, giving each of us two letters two letters of the alphabet to phone to urge people to renew. A one-minute pitch is good for all the voice-mails we’ll have to deal with. A similar pitch should go via email to those whose phone numbers are out of date. But always personal contact is best, Phones are second, emails third in retention and recruitment. Also, we need to pitch non-members who won Lisagors or were finalists if they didn’t sign up for free memberships at the banquet. This is an annual task, a big one. Aimee will help sort them out.

Kristen said the membership form should go online. Can Howard’s graphics guy redesign it so it looks nice on the Web. Then can Jon Seidel or Gary Kopycinski load it?

Further Lisagor: Aimee said entries brought in $21,490 and dinner tickets $20,331 for a total of $41,811. (Dinners cost $47 a plate.) She does not have all the bills yet, and will have a fuller report at the next meeting.

Susan made a motion to appropriate $200 to Kathy Catrambone, our former executive director, for all the help she provided Aimee in preparing for Lisagor. Board increased the amount to $300. And we give Kathy our continued sincere thanks.

CHC Foundation: Susan said it brought in $262 at the Lisagor book and bag sale. Thanks to Rob Hess for his salesmanship, Howard Dubin and Rob Elder for their donations. Rob Elder would like to have a silent auction next year (as would Susan). It was a straight sale this year because of uncertain logicstics. Steve said he still plans a second Scribe Aid. Board discussed raising money for CHCF by staging or participating in a run next fall. Odette will investigate.

Minutes: approved as submitted.

FOI: Alden said he is working with the web developer to get the FOI site up. The blogger and researcher are on board, with three initial posts for the developer to put in a mock-up. He will send the mock-up to the board to take a look.

Meeting adjourned at 10:20 a.m.

Next meeting: 9 a.m. Fri. June 8 at Bloomberg.

Respectfully submitted,

Susan S. Stevens

President ex-officio and interim secretary

How to win a Pulitzer, SPJ under the tree, and FOIA follow-up

Here’s what’s up this month

Nov. 30, 2011

Hope your Thanksgiving was great that you had many things to be thankful for as you celebrated with family and/or friends. And hope the rest of your holidays are even better. But for now, let’s get back to business.

How did they do it? – Pulitzer Prize winners Frank Main, Mark Konkol and John J. Kim of the Chicago Sun-Times will talk about their immersive documentation of violence in Chicago neighborhoods, probing the lives of victims, criminals and detectives as a widespread code of silence impedes solutions. 7 p.m.  Thurs. Dec. 8 at Columbia College, 33 E. Congress, Room 219 (Journalism Auditorium). After they discuss what it takes to create a Pulitzer-winning series and photos, they will take questions. Please join them and us.

Access – In our continuing effort to open the doors to city, county and state governments, we plan two initiatives. We will create an online guide to FOI officials in the five-county area and with state offices, partnering with groups such as the Better Government Association. In addition, we will create a blog website for FOI news, including state law changes, court rulings, etc. Thanks to McCormick Foundation funding, we have a budget of $13,000 and are able to pay a journalist needing work for each of these jobs. To apply, contact CHC President Steve Franklin.

More on access – We will co-sponsor with the Loyola University student chapter an appearance by Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy in January. And in February, we plan a FOI access panel follow-up. Details on both to follow.

Online & digital – We will hold a workshop in late January in downtown Chicago with the Knight News Innovation Lab looking at online and digital tools for journalists as they cover the coming federal elections. Watch for more information.

Public-Press – More than 100 people attended and many asked a lot of good questions at our Nov. 8 event at The Little Black Pearl. We connected community members with the African-American news media so they gained a better understanding of news coverage. WBEZ’s Natalie Moore moderated. Speakers were Glenn Reedus, editor of the Chicago Crusader, Aminah Hanan, executive director of Blogging While Brown, a national network of bloggers, Richard Muhammad, editor of the Final Call, and Matt McGill. This was the second of our community dialogues; our first was in Austin.

Need a holiday gift? – For that journalist who is hard to shop for, how about a membership in SPJ and CHC? Go to www.spj.org to shop on-line (don’t forget the local dues down toward the bottom of the form). It’s a bargain at $92. In fact, on Jan. 1, 2012, SPJ dues go up $3. So save a little now. Also good for birthdays and other special occasions! For more information, contact CHC Membership VP Rumanna Hussain. If you want a gift in another price range, donate any amount to the CHC Foundation. Send your check to CHCF Treasurer Howard S. Dubin, Manufacturers News, 1633 Central St., Evanston, IL 60201.

Welcoming new board members – Lolly Bowean of the Chicago Tribune and Fabiola Pomareda Garcia of La Raza newspaper have joined the CHC board. They attended their first board meeting Nov. 18, and showed wonderful enthusiasm and readiness to dig in on all the work that we want to do. They will be great additions to the board.

Lisagor Awards – We’re going online this year, which we think will make it easier for you to enter. Deadline for entries is Feb. 8, 2012. Our awards banquet will be Fri. May 4 at the Union League Club. New in 2012 is the Anne Keegan Award for reporting on ordinary people and touching the heart. It will be free, for print only. But for a nominal sum you can enter the other Lisagor categories in print, broadcast and online. Watch for more information soon!

Ethics AdviceLine – Phone 866-DILEMMA. If you have a problem about how to handle a story or a boss, call our professional advisers. Our service is free to all pro journalists. We have answered more than 900 calls in a decade. For more information, see our website.

JobFile – Need a job? Looking for a new one? See our website. Ever-faithful Bob Roberts compiles HUNDREDS of job leads! Check all four categories, all the way to the end. And, take a look around www.headlineclub.org to see the many other things we do.

Membership – We need you. You need us. What other group focuses on access, ethics, pro development? Don’t lose your renewal notice in your stacks of holiday snailmail. And encourage your colleagues to join via the SPJ website or contact Membership Rumanna Hussain.

Stay in touch – You can find CHC on Facebook and Twitter:

New Orleans Streaming … Cash for Watchdogs … and Lisagors May 4

 Here’s what’s up this month

Oct 27, 2011
 

Convention comments – Check www.spj.org for a lot of streaming media on the 2011 national convention we held jointly with RTDNA. The professional development sessions and there are a hundred of them are great. Many are recapped online. Curtis Lawrence of Columbia College was selected chairman of the national Diversity Committee. CHC was awarded honors for the best large chapter, and for its work on diversity, professional development and freedom of information. If you have never been to an SPJ convention, plan now for next fall in Fort Lauderdale.
 

Access – A little more light has been shed! A follow-up to our journalism access survey brought representatives of city, county and state governments together with about 50 of us for a forum. We believe the governments now have a better idea of what we want, what we need, and what we are legally entitled to get in the way of information. See more on our website. We will be offering another training session for journalists who need to know more about FOI. The McCormick Foundation is funding these.

Watchdog Grants – We have almost $6,000 to give away! Investigative reporters who either freelance or work for small-budget news operations are more than welcome to apply for stipends to pay expenses for investigations. Examples: photocopying of records, travel. You name it. Only salaries are not included. The Driehaus Foundationfunds this program, and we are ready and willing to consider your request. For more details, see our website. To apply, contact CHC board member Kristen Schorsch. 


Public-Press – We’ll give community members a better idea how the African-American news media covers its community at 6 p.m. Tues. Nov. 8 at The Little Black Pearl, 1060 E. 47th St. WBEZ reporter and South Side Bureau Chief Natalie Moore will moderate the discussion. All are welcome. Free. Refreshments will be served. This is the second of our community dialogues; our first was in Austin.


Medill – We regret the outcome of this fight. But we respect Northwestern University’s decision to give up trying to persuade Cook County Circuit Court and the state’s attorney that student journalists are indeed journalists and covered by the Illinois Reporters Privilege Act. NU waged a long fight, until Judge Diane Cannon ruled Sept. 7 against the student journalists. NU decided against appealing. 


Lisagor Awards – We have nailed down Fri. May 4 at the Union League Club for the annual Lisagor Awards banquet. Mark your 2012 calendars now! We are looking at entering the 21st Century and probably will take the contest online, so watch for more information about that in the next month or so. Get ready to enter your best work of 2011. Remember that CHC is not just print. We have online, broadcast and ethnic news media categories.


Thanks, Kathy – Hundreds of you know Kathy Catrambone because of desperate calls and e-mails about Lisagor the last three years. She made you and us happy with her TLC. Sad to say, Kathy won’t be your contact next year. She has handed over the CHC executive directorship to another longtime CHC member, Aimee DeBat. Kathy remains a full-time editor at www.patch.com. We are looking for people to replace Aimee as board secretary and communications guru. 

Help wanted – Do more than just pay your dues and sit back to see what we come up with! We need volunteers who are skilled in social media and online tools to help promote and advance our website and group email efforts. Also, we need musicians for a Scribe Aid event we hope to have in December. Our first raised $1,500, which we gave to unemployed and underemployed journalists for advanced training of their choice. Contact President Steve Franklin at stevebey@live.com. 

Randi rocks – Hope you saw a lot of board member Randi Belisomo’s personal, poignant and perfect reports for WGN-TV from Haiti, where she reported during the building of a water well in honor of her late husband, Carlos Hernandez Gomez who was with CLTV and WBEZ. If you missed Randi’s reports, you can catch up at WGN-TV’s website. Randi also organized a scholarship in honor of Carlos and directs the CHC Foundation’s scholar-internship program.


Board babies – Congratulations to CHC board members Amy Lee and Anna Tarkov, who are new mothers. Anna says Benjamin Alexander Wagenhofer arrived Sept. 29. Amy reports Josephine Lee Baker was born Oct. 7. Though both moms report sleep-deprivation, they are happy. Says Amy: “It’s so incredible what big changes these tiny babies can bring!” Anna: “So overall it has been fun, but I’m definitely looking forward to striking a better balance between baby and the rest of life eventually.


Alden moves – Alden Loury, CHC’s president-elect and vice president of FOIA, has joined the Better Government Association reporting team as a senior investigator. Alden was previously publisher of the esteemed Chicago Reporter, where he worked for 12 years. Best wishes on your new job with the BGA! Reporter Editor Kimbriell Kelly is acting publisher.


Zoller honored – Longtime CHC member Stan Zoller has been named one of the four distinguished journalism advisers in the nation.

NOLA – While in New Orleans for the SPJ convention, I took a levee tour. In addition, I saw a lot of what looked like small cemeteries on city lots in the 9th Ward. Turns out I was looking at concrete pilings left from homes destroyed by Katrina. Still see them in my nightmares.
