CNN International Desk
So what’s it like working on international stories with foreign correspondents? How did someone who aspired to become an attorney find herself in the exciting career of working in television? Come meet and ask questions of Elizabeth Joseph from CNN’s International Desk. Elizabeth works with Christiane Amanpour and can give you some insight on a career path working with international news. She also has stints with ABC’s “Good Morning America,” “Primetime” and “20/20.” The session is scheduled for Thursday, November 17 at 3:00 p.m. in Cronkite #355. As her schedule is fluid at the moment, please RSVP to cronkitecareerservices@asu.edu in case we need to get a hold of you should the time and/or room change.

Cronkite News Service
We still have openings for spring in Cronkite News Service’s Phoenix bureau.

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.

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.).
