Scripps Career Days Debuts on the Internet

To emphasize the importance of multimedia, students and media professionals participating in the annual Scripps Career Days at the Scripps Howard School of Journalism and Communications have created an online Scripps Days site and a YouTube site to showcase the event in text, photos and video. Twelve representatives from The E.W. Scripps Company visited the Scripps Howard School this week Wednesday and Thursday to offer more than $100,000 in career opportunities to Hampton University students. The first day of Scripps Career Days, Jan. 27, offered workshops; a keynote address by Lana Durban Scott, director of the company's television news strategy and operations; and a networking reception for students, faculty and the visiting professionals. On Jan. 28, 70 students were interviewed for internships, scholarships, apprenticeships and Semester in Washington placements. To see the event, check out:
