Journalism Day presents career opportunity

Journalism and public relations students were given the chance to network with professionals, listen to and query expert panelists, as well as be acknowledged for their work at Journalism and Public Relations Day on Thursday. A panel on “Careers in Social Media” addressed the growing field of marketing and reporting through mediums like Facebook and Twitter. Professionals from Monday Morning Quarterback, The Honest Company, the #WeAllGrow Latina Network, Los Angeles Times and Trailer Park spoke about how social media has shaped their careers.

The “Storytelling in Diverse Communities” panel featured Teri Sforza from the OC Register, Jesus Ayala from ABC News and Anh Do from the Los Angeles Times.

Throughout the entire event, students had the opportunity to meet and show their resumes to 11 public relations and journalism professionals in networking sessions.

To wrap up the event, students were recognized for the work they do for the various campus media outlets and in their classes, and over $20,000 in scholarships were awarded to students.
