How many days until graduation?


For those of you who are seniors, it's that time of year -- and your life! You have one semester left here in the Park School (we miss you already), and you are already tired of that horrendous but inevitable question: "So-oooooooo," drawls your aunt/uncle/cousin/grade-school teacher, etc. etc., "What are YOU doing after graduation?"

The answer, of course, is that you are embarking upon the most exciting adventure in your life so far.

But the other answer has to do with employment...which you may want to start thinking about in more focused, serious ways.

If that's the case, and you happen to be interested in journalism, graphic design, photojournalism, or advertising sales, here's a good place to start (and watch this space in the months to come, we'll be featuring LOTS of such opportunities):

The New York Press Association will host a job fair for college seniors on Saturday, March 31, at the Gideon Putnam Hotel in Saratoga Springs. The by-appointment-only fair matches community newspapers with college students looking to enter the job market in the fields of journalism, graphic design, photojournalism and advertising
sales. Students wishing to be considered for interviews at the job fair should submit a cover letter, resume, and three clips of recently created news articles, photos, or ads (as appropriate) to NYPA:

Via email:

Via postal service: NYPA Attn: C. Hogan-Kilburn 1681 Western Avenue Albany, NY 12203.

Deadline is Feb. 15. Student submissions will be posted on the NYPA website for review by NYPA member newspapers. Those selected for an interview will be notified by March 15.
