Happy Summer!

Time to recharge, renew, have some new adventures, and get ready for things to come….so here is a question to think about Michigan State Sports Journalism students……

WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO MAKE YOURSELF BETTER?

Here are some suggestions:

1) keep doing entries on your personal blog, such as commenting on a sporting event, issue in the sports world, or even something you have witnessed/done yourself. A written entry, quick vlog, photos, even audio or a graphic will help keep your skills sharp and advancing your portfolio.

2) watch your content on social media. Employers, both current and future, are watching what you do, are you?

3) reach out and network with people and places that you want to work for. Making contacts, all the time, is the way to get that internship/job you really want.

4) READ! Read books, web stuff, everything you can get your hands on. The way to be a good journalist is to know what the world is doing right – and wrong.

 

SO HAVE A GREAT SUMMER….#SpartansWill!
