CCNY Communications Alumni Anne Mancuso, Clyde Haberman, and Paul Winfield were kind enough to give a group of 15 CCNY journalism students a tour of the Times newsroom recently and sit down to discuss standards, convergence and other issues of moment.
According to Prof. Philip Kay, organizer of the professional development workshop, “It was a rewarding and energizing experience and we're very grateful to all of them for being so generous with their time.”
“We're lucky to have such committed alumni,” notes Prof. Kay, offering a special thanks to Anne for taking the initiative and doing the heavy lifting with planning and coordinating schedules.
In November, Communications Alumni attended the department's “Building Bridges,” special event here on campus, developed to build links between alumni and students. Each May, Communications Alumni host a fundraising and scholarship dinner. Watch this blog for news about the dinner and other important events. Recent grads are encouraged to join the CCNY Alumni organization. For info, visit:
What’s your specialty? What are you passionate about … books, music, film, fashion, advocacy? To find a blog in your area of interest, visit:
Technorati lists top blogs in numerous industries. Check out a few … post comments … share your views! If you track blogs written by leaders in your field, you’ll soon become knowledgeable about a wide range of topics. This provides useful info and discussion points for internships and job interviews.
If there isn’t a blog that strikes your fancy, then create one. Your unique voice is important. Blogs are excellent tools to promote “brand you” and a weblog (or blog) is an excellent way to help refine your writing skills. Blogging and “citizen journalism” are all the rave. And, it’s fun!
Careful: the Internet is a powerful communications tool. Students are advised that potential employers track blogs for any “off color” subject matter or content. Polish your professional skills by posting meaningful blog posts that contribute to the body of knowledge in your area of expertise. Then, remember to proof, fact-check and spell-check—before posting info for the world to see!
If you have a blog, please forward your URL to email@example.com; next semester, we plan to publish a list of MCA student and faculty blogs, as well as those of interest in media specialty areas (film/video, ad/pr, journalism).
