Update from Chrys Wu

On Monday, I had the pleasure of hearing a talk from Chrys Wu, an active member of the journalism field with a focus in editorial consultanting. She has experience in print, audio, video and online storytelling, research and Web design.

Wu spoke to a class of roughly 17 students about how to prepare for the field and what to expect when you get there. She had a great deal of advice and portrayed it in a fun and humourous way. The most important piece of advice she gave as far as I’m concerned is that whatever you want to do with your degree, do it now!

I intend to continue to take her advice and read and write as much as I can to make my writing the best it can be, continue to use multimedia to put a package together and show that to possible employers as well.

Overall, Wu was a very valuable speaker and had a lot of great advice and imformation to give to my fellow students and myself. I would encourage my viewers to take a look at her blog and follow Chrys WU on twitter.
