Emerging Skills of Tomorrow's Journalist

p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; }

Hey everyone! My name is Rachel and I am one of the four interns working with Fresno Pacific University and the Social Media Club this year. I am a senior from the Center for Advanced Research and Technology (CART), a vocational learning facility that is there to help high school juniors and seniors throughout the Central Valley by giving them a hands on approach to many different career fields. I am in the Marketing and Advertising Lab where we have done many things to enhance our knowledge on Marketing and Advertising. Currently we are doing our internship to gain experience in the work force.

In our internship with Fresno Pacific University and the Social Media Club we are planning an event called "Emerging Skills of Tomorrow's Journalist". This event will give many different aspects of journalism to the public and will show them how exciting it is. It will feature Reaz Mahmood from California State University-Fresno, Betsy Lumbye from the Fresno Bee, a television personality, and a local blogger. Come check it out at CART (Center for Advanced Research and Technology) on Shaw and Clovis Ave, right behind the Sierra Vista Mall. Anyone is welcome to come,beginning at 6:30 p.m., ending around 8:30 p.m. Mark your calendars for Tuesday, May 31st! Can't wait to see you there!

 

Now back to our internship, my teammates and I have had lots of fun working with Nick Gundry and Steven Sanchez Jr. We are creating many different flyers, organizing the event, and learning a lot about journalism as we do everything. We also are doing all of the advertising with the event, which can be a tad difficult. Mainly because we want something to pop out to people, but we want the point to come across. It's a great experience nevertheless. While being apart of this internship, we have been using different forms of social media and have actually gotten to see how social media is used with current events and news everywhere. Social media is also how we have gotten the word around about what we do, with our surveys, our information...and even this event. It's kind of crazy and awesome at the same time.

 

Until next time,

 

Rachel Ruiz-Beckham
