Welcome back to the Spring 2017 semester!
I hope you all had a restful winter break and that you are ready for an exciting semester in the MS in Publishing program!
Be sure to check out the blog daily as we are always updating it with great information for MS in Publishing students and alumni. We start off each week with an inspiring Quote of the Week. Other regular weekly features include: The Link of the Week, Jobs of the Week, and Around Town: Books and Magazine Events in NYC. We also post monthly Alumni in the Spotlight Interviews, Faculty/Advisory Board in the Spotlight features as well as our Media Roundups and Reports from the Trenches (we love to have students blog about field trips, guest lectures, books or magazines they have read etc. so please don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to contribute) and Volunteer and Events postings.
In addition, we also post numerous Internship and Employment opportunities so be sure to bookmark the blog. As you embark on your internship search don’t forget to go to the Internship Resources (Book and Magazine) tab on the blog. We have been working hard to update this resource and there are great links here to assist you with your search. We are also in the process of developing a robust Career Resources tab on the blog that will host useful information on resumes and cover letter writing, job searching and networking, so check back often!
The blog also includes our Faculty and Staff Bios—a great way to learn more about the backgrounds and accomplishments of your professors and publishing staff! In addition, the Publishing Links that run along the right side of the blog are also a great resource for students and publishing professionals.
I would also like to take this time to thank you for your contributions to and feedback on the blog and we hope that you are finding it to be a useful resource. Please feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any suggestions or comments you have.
We love to hear from you and are always looking for new ways to provide you with useful information. And, for students interested in getting putting together some writing samples, putting together a post for the blog is a great way to do that.
Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful semester!
