The end of the semester is near! Only two more weeks! Here’s what’s ahead in Weeks 15 and 16:
In Week 15, we will talk about the final preparations for your portfolio review and will review best practices for your resume. We will also have two guest speakers. On Tuesday (Nov. 28), we will do a Skype call with Amir Vera, a Robertson School alumn and a reporter for the Virginian-Pilot. On Thursday (Nov. 30), Jake Burns will visit us in class, who is an anchor and reporter for CBS 6.
In Week 16, we will do test runs of your portfolio presentations. On Tuesday (Dec. 5), the students who worked in the newsroom on election night will have their test run. On Thursday (Dec. 7), the students who covered the election night parties will have their turn. All students have to be present on both days. Details on the test runs and the portfolio reviews will be provided in Week 15 during class.
The portfolio review will be on Friday, Dec. 8, 9 to 11 am, in Temple 1137. All students are expected to attend.
