Getting that first job in journalism

It is the time of year when journalism students are looking for jobs. So advice on putting together a CV and supporting material is timely. The best I have seen comes from Mindy McAdams who teaches in Florida.

As well as her advice there are links to examples including a well laid-out one page CV. English English speaking students just need to know that résumé = CV, and clips = cuttings. Every graduating student looking for advantage in a tough job market should read what McAdams has to say.
