On Monday, March 26, 2012, Journalism alumni Rob Boston ’85 and Kari Andren ’08 will speak at the annual Journalism Jobs Boot Camp, sponsored by the IUP chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists of the Journalism Department.

Boston, a senior policy analyst for Americans United for Separation of Church and State in Washington, D.C., and Andren, a reporter for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, will talk about their post-IUP careers, how they got their jobs in news and in communications, and other career-enhancing and networking info useful for prospective job-seekers.

The event is scheduled to begin in the HUB Monongahela Room at 5:00 p.m., and is scheduled to adjourn by 6:30 p.m.

A sign-in sheet will be at the podium. Students who sign in, attend the full event, and engage in the discussion can receive as much as a half-letter-grade of extra credit for the JRNL 328 class.
