During the past few weeks, I've been helping a recent graduate pull together the materials she needs to land her first journalism job. We started slow and simple. First, we re-worked her resume then we agreed upon a few work samples she could use as clips. For the remainder of 2017, she and I will work on writing the perfect cover letter, finding job openings online and planning for a big move out of New York. I went into to this partnership not knowing what to expect, but I'm happy to say I've really enjoyed coaching her.
