Used your Aggie background on the job?

I'm looking for examples of when Aggie journalists have used their knowledge of the university on the job. Big or small, funny or serious -- Can you name a time when your own Aggie background prevented an error or enriched a story?

These are being collected for use in building a case that it's good for the university to have A&M graduates working in the media. But examples can be positive or negative, anonymous or identified by name or organization -- your choice.

You can e-mail them to me or post them (anonymously if you choose) on our forum, here.

Being an Aggie has opened many doors, especially in Texas. Everyone either loves Aggies or hates them. Regardless, it's a good conversation starter.

I am a recruiter for Microsoft, and find it especially helpful in recruiting candidates away from other companies. :)
