I would apologize, but that would break the first rule of the Carnival of Journalism: No apologies.
In April 2012 I joined a new startup (cheap plug – check out Circa) and the Carnival fell to the wayside. My bad. But folks still want to blog. And without a sense of community, it becomes REALLY hard. At least, that’s how I feel. And perhaps others do too, because many people have poked me to get up and get the Carnival going again. In the end, this is a community platform. And if folks see value in it, I’m happy to M.C. and in the end, that’s all I’m doing. The value of JCARN comes from the network. So… kudos to all of you.
Wait… what is this again?
Check the About Page. The TL;DR version: Every month we pick a different topic to all write about and share our thoughts. Ask to join the Google Group and everything will make sense after at least 1-month.
How can I submit an idea?
Excellent question. Let’s try something new. Submit your idea in the form here. This form will always be available in the tab above “Submit an idea/host a JCARN.”
What is this month’s Topic!?!?!?!
The due date: November 8th, Friday.
- Ideally experience at a college media organization would help a student learn relevant skills for the workforce and help students land a job.
- If you work at a news organization, what kinds of skills do you and your organization look for in new hires?
- What kind of “clips” should college students have by graduation?
- You can approach this as your advice to college media organizations or as if you were a theoretical adviser or manager of a student news organization. Or as a theoretical employer imagining the ideal experience a just-graduated student should have gotten.
Since this is our first JCARN back. I’m offering a direct “plan b” blog post related to the general topic. If you find yourself struggling – the prompt is: “Should we teach J School students how to aggregate?”
