Dear Dr. Bilsky,
I read your bio in the W&J CCN Mentoring Network and as a current junior majoring in English, I was wondering if you would be willing to speak with me about your experience as a graduate student at Stanford. I am preparing my own graduate school applications and welcome any advice you might have for me.
Thank you so much for your time and I appreciate your willingness to be a resource for W&J students.

For most journalism students, the biggest step toward finding employment isn’t passing the final. It isn’t acing midterms, turning in homework or even meeting deadlines at the college paper.
The most critical period in journalism school is the three-month window stretching from September to November informally known as internship application season. Getting professional experience and making contacts through an internship can mean the difference between landing a job or being unemployed after commencement.
That season is upon us. So write up a cover letter, polish your resumé and start applying to the internships listed below that pique your interest. Application deadlines for some of the best internships are in less than a week, so don’t wait!
See our list here at http://www.poynter.org/news/mediawire/376568/here-are-70-journalism-internships-and-fellowships-for-application-season/
