WH08P! Graduation, and more journalism job tips

Commencement, commissioning and Final Review are today and tomorrow. Congratulations to our graduating seniors, and please stay in touch! I am sure you all have jobs already, so drop us a line and let us know how things are going, but here are some more good links on resumes and interviewing for jobs.

The University of Kent has an excellent interactive practice interview for journalism job applicants. Lots of sample questions and smart thinking. You do have to adjust slightly for the Brit factor (sub-editing means copy editing, and so forth).

Also, you could be prepared to talk about how you might cover the beat, and probably want to have some questions ready to ask them, such as what kind of learning experience you will get at this job.

More advice: Every weekday over at Poynter, Joe Grimm's "Ask the Recruiter" column answers questions that journalists wish they could ask their bosses about their jobs. Here's an archive of his answers to resume questions and questions about interviewing.
