Must-See Monday

September 22, 2008

I had the opportunity address journalism students last week in the First Amendment Forum at the new Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications in downtown Phoenix.  I was part of their “Must See Mondays” presentations where professionals share their insights with up and coming journalism/public relations students.  My talk was co-sponsored by ASU’s PRSSA chapter.

What a great bunch of students – a good mix of freshmen through seniors.  And what great questions – the usual salary and typical-day stuff – but more in-depth questions like work-life balance, what classes made the most impact, what minor would be a good compliment to a journalism degree.  One student asked me what I would do if I was the spokesperson for one of the companies on Wall Street.  Had to do some quick-thinking on that one.

All in all, an exceptional evening.  I am again encouraged by these students and the role they are going to play in our profession.
