Spring is usually when professional organizations get together for training and networking. As you know, 15 of your peers will attend the TIPA convention in Fort Worth tomorrow through Saturday. At the same time, executive editors from across Texas (the Texas Associated Press Managing Editors group) are meeting in San Antonio. They’ve asked us to invite any student who is interested to visit with editors during a reception at the end of this week. Here’s the information we have:
Please let your students know that members of the Texas Associated Press Managing Editors will be available to talk to students, critique resumes and give job tips during the Texas APME conference from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. Friday, April 5, in the Peraux meeting room at the St. Anthony Hotel, 300 East Travis Street in San Antonio. This is a great opportunity for your students to meet professional journalists, many of whom are responsible for recruiting and hiring. We hope to see you there.
It’s short notice but a great opportunity. If you can take advantage of it, I hope you will.
