I was invited to give a presentation on forging a career after journalism school, so I thought I’d collect my thoughts here!
Do you have a current resume?
Have you made a personal/portfolio website (like this one)?
What do you want to try before you graduate?
What do you want to accomplish in your career?
Do you have time to do some internships?
Do you have ideas for side jobs/secondary sources of income?
Are you networking, especially where you want to work?
Are you open to new possibilities and opportunities at work?
