Videos will be selected by a student/faculty/staff committee. A brief Q&A with the student will follow the presentation of their video.

DVD
·Submit to Catalina Monsalve in Suite 302 during regular business hours by 5 p.m. Monday, November 14th for consideration.

Cronkite News Service
We still have openings for spring in Cronkite News Service’s Phoenix bureau, and I’m asking that you make sure your students know about this rare and valuable opportunity.

By spending two full days in the CNS bureau each week, students as early as their sophomore years can gain experience covering the Arizona State Legislature and significant public policy issues while they build a portfolio that positions them for better internships and jobs. CNS staffers also gain experience shooting photos and developing Web video and, depending on their abilities, other multimedia complements.

About 30 media clients around Arizona, including The Arizona Republic, trust CNS to give them timely, thorough reports from the statehouse and around Arizona.

The only prerequisite is JMC 201, though JMC 301 often is the best preparation. Experience covering government and politics isn’t required.

Students interested in this opportunity should contact Steve Elliott, CNS digital news director, at steve.elliott@asu.edu, right away. And if you have students you think would be suited for CNS, let Steve know and he’ll reach out to them.

After Cronkite
“After Cronkite” will help you jump-start your career with sessions on resume writing, interviewing, mentoring and conducting a job search. You’ll learn how to market yourself to find the job of your dreams – or at least a job that could lead to your dreams. You’ll get answers to questions like “How often is too often to bug a potential employer?” and “Should I try to negotiate my salary?” And you’ll hear from professionals in a broad range of businesses and career tracks.

This one-credit class is offered twice this spring, for seven weeks each. It is coordinated by Cronkite’s Career Services Director Mike Wong and is open to all Cronkite graduate students and junior and senior undergraduates.

Register for JMC 194-03 After Cronkite (Jan. 5-Feb. 24: Fridays from 11:50 a.m. to 1:40 p.m.) or JMC 194-04 After Cronkite (Feb. 29-April 24: Tuesdays from 4:30-6:30 p.m.).

Discovery Studios
On Wednesday, November 16 at 1:00 p.m. Cronkite alumnus Rob Hammersley (’90) will be here to discuss his career path to working and developing programs for Discovery Studios. Hammersley has executive produced such series as Discovery Channel’s Mythbusters, American Chopper and Weaponizers, Animal Planet’s Tanked and TLC’s Extreme Poodles.

If you have any interest in a career/internships with a company like The Discovery Channel, this will be a great opportunity to ask questions and network with this talented TV executive.
