CUNY Media Conference

leave a comment »

The City University of New York’s annual media conference and job fair is here on October 3 at 8:30am. This year the event is sponsored by The Economist Magazine and Adobe. 

Anyone who is interested in any kind of media should attend. It is informative, you will make great contacts and you will get a free lunch. The workshops are usually pretty interesting as well (usually). Come early and come ready to hunt for a job.

I’ve worked a bunch of these and I’ve talking to the recruiters year after year. Most of the journalist types there are looking are looking for print clips, regardless of what medium they represent.

 Ben Mevorach of 1010 WINS comes every year and every year he is looking for people who could write. Why would a radio news director what people who could write? Well, it’s still about news copy. But beyond that, he is usually looking for people to work on 1010wins.com. So if you have a newsy blog, you have an advantage. Just remember to bring printouts as part of your clips.
