Aspiring Journalists To Attend SFSU Media Job Fair

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--April 21, 1999--Want a fresh take on what today's college students think of the media? What they would do if they were reporters covering today's breaking news events? How influential the Internet and new media are to them? Why they want to pursue careers in radio and television? A media job fair tomorrow at San Francisco State University offers a chance to interview students on these subjects.

Several hundred SFSU students interested in careers in the media are expected to attend the job fair on Thursday, April 22, 1999 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will be held at the Guest Center at San Francisco State University (on South State Dr.) Recruiters from all the major bay area radio and television stations are expected to be on hand.

Highlighting the event will be a luncheon at noon featuring KCBS General Manager Frank Oxarart, followed by a seminar from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. with KPIX-TV Eyewitness News Anchor/Reporters Barbara Rodgers and Manny Ramos. The event is being organized by the SFSU Career Center in collaboration with CBS and the Minority Media and Telecommunications Council. Also participating are a variety of SFSU departments and journalistic organizations including the National Association of Minorities in Communications , the American Society of Newspaper Editors, the Asian American Journalists Association and the Broadcast Skills Bank.
