How do you start that media career for which you spent years in college? Two recent IUP journalism grads tell how at the seventh annual J-Jobs Boot Camp, sponsored by the IUP chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.

The event will be held on Wednesday, April 29, from 5:00–6:15 p.m. in Davis Hall, room 418.  

The Alumni Speakers are:

Then, the paper hired her to lay out and design sports pages, to cover “towns you’ve never heard of” for a Trib-owned suburban weekly, to cover Butler County schools, and finally to cover cops and crime for the Pittsburgh city desk. Meanwhile, she earned a master’s degree from Point Park University.
