Campus Connection: How to write resumes that impress

August 20, 2015 Leave a comment

School is starting again — and it’s never too early to think about your application for the next internship or your first job.

That’s the focus of our current issue of Campus Connection.

We talk to Dennis Anderson, executive editor of the Peoria Journal Star, about what types of resumes catch his eye and what impresses him.

Here’s something to remember: “But what really helps to make a resume great is a concise sentence at the top, just
under the contact information and before the candidate’s experience. This is your shot to tell the hiring manager who you are and what you can do for the organization.”

Think of it as your Twitter bio, but serious.

We have a long-standing commitment to recognize and celebrate excellence in feature storytelling and this remains at the heart of the group’s mission.  But times change, and our workplaces are in transition.  Your daily routine may barely resemble what it was just a few years ago.

Please take a few minutes to share your feedback. Let us know how we can help you in this challenging new environment.

We believe that SFJ is an important resource for you and your colleagues — your smart and savvy ideas will help us keep it that way!

Thanks, in advance. And, take the survey now: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SFJ0814

SFJ debuts new quarterly newsletter for journalism students

June 4, 2014 Leave a comment

We are happy to introduce a new venture: SFJ Campus Connection, a quarterly newsletter with a focus on helping journalists of the future.

Our membership of features writers and editors have dozens of years of industry experience among them. So we are taking advantage of their knowledge to produce the pieces that you’ll see in our newsletter. Best advice for interns, for instance, or links to internship postings.

We also take the name literally — we hope this newsletter will better link SFJ and colleges, and become a useful resource for students who want to be features journalists.

So we are providing the first few issues for free, but after that, they will be available exclusively to SFJ members. Remember, we offer a student discount of just $25 per year.

If you have ideas for this newsletter, please share on our Facebook page.
