Lights, Camera…Entry-Level Entertainment Jobs in New York

There is this nice flashy entertainment job website (4entertainmentjobs.com) that looks like THE place to start. It even has mini US maps that shows where the jobs for the week are located (of course mostly West-Coast concentrated, although there are many jobs listed on the East Coat). The annoying news is that to reap the benefits of this site you have to pay a fee of about $30 a month (although there is a trial option $10 for the week). It sucks to search for a job and have to pay for it, but I decided to mention it and let you decide.
Next there is entertainmentcareers.net, which I think is the next best thing to a free and useful job-searching site. If you want to concentrate on entertainment jobs in the New York area, simply look at those jobs as all are separated by region. Today when I visited the site there were about 275 entry-level entertainment jobs listed, those seem to be decent odds.
The next site has a nice catchy title, bigapplehead.com, and also separates entry-level entertainment jobs by regions (New York, DC and Boston to be exact). This site lists internships, fulltime and entry-level jobs in these regions and has all jobs separated by category. Look for the entertainment category and see what turns up. I also suggest looking at the writing/editing/publishing, as well as the TV/radio links as these can all connect to the entertainment industry.
Two other honorable mentions are topusajobs.com and filcro.com. These sites you have to do a bit more filtering to find first the jobs you want and then the region you want.
