Résumé workshop

Applying for journalism internships and jobs?

The Portland chapter of AAJA wants to help you make your résumés, cover letters, clips, or reels stand out from the rest. Come sign up for one-on-one résumé critiques with editors and broadcast professionals on Oct. 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Oregon Daily Emerald newsroom, 1222 E. 13th Ave., #300 in Eugene.

The event is aimed at both journalism students and professionals — print, broadcast, and online journalists are all welcome.

Bring application packets (résumés, cover letters, clips, a DVD or link to your reel) and talk for 15 minutes with a professional who will give you great tips on making the best impression on recruiters.

Many thanks to our gracious volunteers:
Bill Church, Executive Editor, The Statesman-Journal
George Rede, Community News Web Editor, The Oregonian
Anne Hsu, News Producer, KATU

Drop-ins are also welcome — you can wait for an open slot or get help from reporters from The Oregonian and The Statesman-Journal.
