Five tips from former Wall Street Journal reporter Joe Mathewson ’55 for students interested in journalism

“I’ve never met a bored journalist,” Medill School of Journalism professor and former Wall Street Picture of Joe Mathewson courtesy of 123People.comJournal reporter Joe Mathewson ’55 often tells students, noting that there are “no dull jobs and no dull days” in the field of journalism. While some people like to claim that journalism is a dying field, Mathewson rightly believes that it is simply evolving, and he wants students to know that journalism needs talented graduates with a passion for writing and a strong liberal arts background.

With a number of grandchildren at the College, Mathewson is a regular visitor to Career Services and a mentor to students currently considering a career in journalism. Here, we’ve compiled Mathewson’s top five tips for students who have a passion for the written word and investigating the world around them.

  1. Journalism needs intellectually curious young graduates from a variety of academic backgrounds — sell your experience, no matter what it is! Whether you are a history or neuroscience or economics major, journalism needs you.
  2. Have a blog and credentials you can show people. Nothing speaks to your skills better than a thorough, well-organized set of clips. Make sure you can speak to why your previous experience, regardless of its direct relation to journalism, will help you succeed as a journalist.
  3. Don’t confine yourself to print. In this day and age, you need to have multiple skills — learn to shoot and edit video, take photographs, blog and manage social media. Wire services in particular are booming.
  4. Learn how to write about economics. The economy is the number one story around the world right now, and you will be a highly marketable employee if you know how to write about business, employment and interest rates.
  5. Familiarize yourself with the tricks of the trade — AP style, interview skills, journalistic ethics, etc. Do research for specific job and internship opportunities. If you’re applying for a job with the Associated Press, Bloomberg or Reuters, learn the verbs of attribution in business journalism.

Interested in pursuing job or internship opportunities in journalism? Make sure you’ve signed up on Dartboard to receive our regular blitzes about communications jobs! There are stories out there waiting to be told — are you going to be the one to tell them?

Now that You’ve Made the Connection…How to Follow Up

Walk away from the Employer Connections Fair with some new friends, a handful of business cards, and a short list of organizations you’d like to work for?

Here’s a short video with simple tips and an action plan for following up with employers:

http://video.about.com/jobsearch/How-to-Follow-Up-After-a-Career-Fair.htm

One of our favorite tips to stand out like a Dartmouth rock star hire? Browse through press releases and content on organization’s website and go beyond yesterday’s conversation in your follow-up: What piques your interest about the company and especially excites you about their work? Demonstrate that interest.

It may seem like employers are in a buyer’s market — and that they get to do most of the selection decisions. But, ultimately, you get decide where you want to work, too. And until you show them — they can’t gauge how very interested you are.

As always, career advisors are available to answer any questions you may have on follow-up. Schedule an appointment with Career Services or stop by our office on the 2nd floor of 63 South Main (above Bank of America) for one of our drop-in appointments, available on a first-come, first-serve basis Monday through Friday from 1:30 to 4:00 pm.

 

 

Seniors: Drop In to Get Set for Fall

Attention Seniors: Planning on submitting your resume for interviewing opportunities offered through On-Campus Recruiting come fall? Don’t miss Career Services extended drop-in hours on Friday, September 8, Monday September 10, and Tuesday September 11.

Drop-ins are available for resume or cover letter review on a first-come, first-serve basis from 10:00 am to 4 pm. Stop by.

Do You Like to Work with Open Doors or Closed Ones?

As summer terms exams end and we prepare for the fall term to start, there’s a bit more time available than usual to pause and reflect on recent experience: What did you like? And what did you not like?

During the rush of internship and job applications, it’s easy to forget that the job search process is actually one of mutual selection: You get to pick your employer just as your employer gets to pick you.

What are you looking for in a company culture? Would you prefer to work for a company that keeps a hawkish focus on keeping proprietary information confidential, or a company with an open door policy known for transparent leadership?

Want real-life examples of both? On the privacy side, take a look at the Apple-Samsung battle over intellectual property. Apple’s super strict privacy policies are legendary — many of their employees learn about new products at the same time consumers do!

On the more open door side, take a look at this Forbes profile of 10 Leaders (and Companies) Who Aren’t Afraid to Be Transparent. (Note: Most of these companies aren’t giving away proprietary secrets, either.)

Something to think about as you think about your next move?
