SPJ DePaul completed its professional development campus chapter requirement on Oct. 28 with a “10-Minute Mentors” event at its downtown Loop campus newsroom.
Student members brought their resumes and sought career advice from some of the leading journalists in the Chicago area. The chapter would like to thank the journalists for taking time out of their busy schedules to help our students:
Jane Hirt, Managing Editor of the Chicago Tribune
Tran Ha, RedEye
Flynn McRoberts, Bloomberg Business News
Shia Kapos, blogger at Crains Chicago Business
Abdon Pallasch, Chicago Sun-Times political reporter
Sandra Guy, Chicago Sun-Times reporter
Cassandra Gaddo, Managing Editor & Electronic Media Editor at Today’s Chicago Woman magazine
The chapter also would like to thank College of Communication internship director Graciela Kenig for helping plan the event.
