The busiest internship season of the year is just beginning, and we want to prepare interns and newsrooms for some great experiences.
During today’s career chat, we talked with Joanna Hernandez, director of career services at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. Before joining CUNY, Hernandez worked in more than half a dozen newsrooms, including The Washington Post, Newsday, The New York Daily News, The New York Times Regional Media Group, The Star-Ledger and the San Francisco Examiner. Hernandez is also a past president of UNITY: Journalists for Diversity.
Hernandez talked about how interns can make the most of their internships, how newsrooms can best help interns, and where young journalists can look for internships. You can replay the chat here:
