My husband and I are moving to the Columbia area this fall and I would ideally like to find a job in one of the following fields: editing, writing, technical writing, or publishing. I have an English degree, graduated with my BA about 2 years ago, and have roughly 1 year experience in editing. I am not looking for a hook-up with a job (though I wouldn't scoff at one), but am really trying to find out where I should be applying. Are there any publishing, advertising, or writing firms in the area? What magazines and newspapers should I look at? What other employers may have positions like these, available or not?

I am really just looking for a head start. I plan on beginning my job search next week, so I haven't done much research yet. Any help would be appreciated.

You're moving to a State capital with a major university. I'd start there although things are going to be slow everywhere this year. Best of luck!
