A small sign of recovery…

…in today’s Stockton Record.

For months the jobs listings have been lacking…lagging. Nonexistent.

Daily Finance: Atlantic Media announces it will pay all interns

Many industries exploit students and young jobseekers through the dubious practice of unpaid interning, but the media industry, where competition for a foot in the door is fierce, is likely among the worst.
