New journalists often want advice and perspective from news veterans who understand much of what theyre going through. And lets face it: News vets could certainly learn a thing or two from their younger colleagues.
SPJs Mentor Page Facebook Group aims to promote great journalism by introducing journalists of different experience levels and interests. The group is designed to create a networking opportunity for journalists to share ideas, experiences and goals. It is not intended to be a job placement tool.
Participating journalists are encouraged to utilize the SPJ Mentor Page Facebook Group often to share ideas and learn a thing or two. Post questions or responses to ones that have already been asked. Mentors will rotate on a quarterly basis so new perspectives will always be added to the mix.
The SPJ Mentor Page Facebook Group is open only to SPJ members with post-graduate, or higher, membership status. The group is not open to student members. Those interested in joining the group as a mentee should fill out the inquiry form.
Those interested in being a mentor to the group should have at least five years of professional journalism experience. Please contact Jennifer Royer via email if you are interested in serving as a mentor to the group.
