Archived Ad: English Major Seeks Journalism Career Advice

My name is Jaime and I am a senior majoring in English literature and minoring in politics and environmental studies. I’m seeking a full-time position as a reporter at either an online or traditional newspaper.

I have some journalism experience. I was features editor of The Justice for over a year and am currently an associate editor. I’m also a reporter The Editorial, where I conduct and edit interviews with creatives and entrepreneurs in the Boston area. This semester, I am also working as an editorial intern at a public radio program called Living On Earth.

Are you a journalist with insights to share? What smaller/local publications are respected in the industry and what skills do they value most in an entry-level reporter? I’m obsessed with becoming a better interviewer, a better writer and more effective collaborator — any advice on improving my craft and/or navigating this job market is appreciated!
