  6. 6. 1.Study the newspaper in question <ul><li>Many newspapers have editors with a certain style. If one wants to work for the sports page it would be best to see what kind of material is covered and how it is covered by the sports section. Consider the numbers of high school, college, and pro sports covered. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>This example applies to all paying positions, including arts and entertainment sections, because without knowing the standard writing style and stories focused upon, your chances of being hired are smaller. </li></ul>
  8. 8. 2.Send in letters <ul><li>A good way to begin in newspaper work is to publish a letter in the paper. Often, talented writers will shine here. There are stories of writers sending in letters oh a high quality and being offered jobs based upon the merit of their writing. </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>Show respect for the newspaper, but one should show a respect for the workers there as well. Once the letter is published, the editors will be more familiar with your writing and may become more willing to take a chance on you. </li></ul>
  10. 10. 3.Job shadow <ul><li>After studying the paper in question and making attempts at letters, the next logical step is to do a job shadow. Surprisingly, most companies more than welcome students or non-students into their buildings to study the business, and this is the case with newspapers too. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>This puts a foot in the door. Consider interviewing each writer and editor in the section one wants to write for, and see how they got there </li></ul>
  12. 12. 4.Show up <ul><li>The next step after the job shadow would be to start asking about either freelancing or part time work. If one has newspaper experience, the chances are higher. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>However, many writers begin with nothing while freelancing for papers. Stringer positions, for one, require little if any experience. All one needs is a willingness to show up and an aptitude for learning the basics. </li></ul>
  14. 14. 5.Continue <ul><li>Often, the job will not come easily. I had to call a newspaper for six months prior to getting my first paid work as a stringer. The patience is a must; keep calling the paper and asking for work. Send in more letters, and even send example articles to the editors. </li></ul>
  15. 15. 6.Learn everything <ul><li>One thing respected in newspaper work is an ability to learn more than one job. Try to get an understanding of more than one position when visiting the paper on job shadows. Newspapers have dozens of workers, or hundreds, moving into different positions every years. </li></ul>
  16. 16. 7.Continue sending resume out <ul><li>Newspaper work doesn’t make many writers rich. If one has a job at this point, it is important to continue sending in out resumes to higher papers. </li></ul>
  17. 17. <ul><li>This might sound like a waste of time, but if one has the necessary experience there is always a chance. If done with respect to the paper one currently works for, there is no problem. </li></ul>
  18. 18. 8.Build clips <ul><li>By this step, there is a chance for steady work. The important thing to do is build upon the clips one has. Clips are the articles that you had published in the paper. These can be invaluable in getting higher-paying jobs. </li></ul>
  19. 19. 9.Last chance <ul><li>If these strategies have found no success, one can look to outside sources for revenue. Just like newspapers, online sites are in constant need of content. Since the pay less, they would be more open to inexperienced writers. </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>But, even though they pay less, the clips can still be built. Writing on the internet has also helped many writers become better, because many different sites allow others to comment on your work </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>Thank you for attention </li></ul>
