Well THIS is an interesting weekend for sure!
I have now THREE leads for my future. Two are for jobs, and one is for an internship which would be about five different kinds of awesome.
First, I may likely be applying for a job soon in Youngstown. It might be out of my reach, but who knows. Once I get my resume tape wrapped up, that'll be in the works.
Second, Weaver recently informed us of an opening for a reporter that he found in Virginia. It's definitely a smaller market, but it's also probably more the size I can expect to start in.
OK, now to the internship, and this is where it gets GOOD. I have a family member who works for the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer on PBS, one of the most balanced news discussion shows on TV. Now, granted, I've had two internships already, but this is a rare chance. She recently passed along an oppotunity for me to intern with the NewsHour during the upcoming Democratic National Convention. Now, it's by no means a sure thing, but I've already started to put the gears in motion on this one. Stay tuned for more on that!
In the meantime, now that Blogger is cooperating with me, here's one of the stories I'm most likely to put up on my resume tape, below. If any media people out there should see this, please feel free to leave a comment with feedback. I've been critiqued by a large-market news director, and a larger-market reporter about some of my work before, so do your worst; I can take it.
