We’re compiling a list of journalists willing to mentor college journalism students in Virginia. To put your name on the list, go to https://bit.ly/spjva-mentors.
The mentoring could include meeting with a student (in person or online) to offer career advice, or providing feedback on a student’s resume and portfolio — whatever you have time for. Signing up doesn’t commit you to anything.
We will pass along your name and contact information to journalism professors in your area — especially to faculty advisers for campus chapters of SPJ and other journalism groups. Then a faculty member would contact you to nail down details for how you could help students.
Thanks to Professor Alix Bryan, the faculty adviser to the SPJ chapter at Virginia Commonwealth University, for suggesting this idea.
