Some good advice
In a recent blog post, JMC alum Ryan Sholin offers some good advice for J-school students. His basic concept — become an expert at one thing digital and at one thing analog — also makes sense for students majoring in public relations and advertising.
Sholin, who is now director of news innovation at Publish2, a collaborative journalism web site, graduated from JMC’s master’s program last spring. His thesis project was a journalism site called ReportingOn, which was funded by the Knight News Challenge. (Disclosure: I was one of Sholin’s thesis advisors.)
