Landing Journalism Jobs & Internships

My first live chat was #wjchat that was held on Wednesday, June 8 at 8 PM EST. The below tweets outline my involvement in the conversation. The topic of discussion was journalism internships and jobs.


  1. The initial suggestion by the moderator was to ask questions in advance so that they could be discussed. As a PR professional with little journalist experience, I wanted to know what to expect once I start my career.

  2. Another participant wanted to know how to best communicate with bloggers. From my engagement with bloggers in the past, I wanted to help her reach out to them.
  3. I have thought (for a while now) that cover letters are not as prevalent or useful as they used to be. After I tweeted asking this very question, the topic sparked amongst the other participants.
