Letter From The Editor: What we can do for you

Kevin Griffin

The Appalachian’s staff – from the editors to the interns – is one of the most dedicated groups of students that I know and have the privilege of working with every single day.

And I want you to consider becoming a part of this great organization.

On Thursday, Jan. 24 at 5:30 p.m., the editorial board and I will host an interest meeting in The Appalachian’s office for anyone who would like to stop by.

Hear what we have to say, ask us questions, talk to us one-on-one or even sign up to join staff if you like what you hear.

After all, working for your college newspaper is a résumé builder – especially if your future plans involve journalism.

According to usatodayeducate.com, working for your college newspaper is an excellent way to let your potential employer know that you have prior experience in the field, even if it is on the collegiate level. And that could give you the one-up that places your chances at getting the job above everyone else who applied.

But if you’re still hesitant about joining, the editorial board and I invite you to our office – Student Publications in Plemmons Student Union across from CSIL’s old office and down the hall from SGA – to hear what The Appalachian does for the university and what it can do for you.

We hope to see you then, and thank you for supporting Appalachian State University’s student newspaper.
If you have any questions or concerns, please email me at editor@theappalachianonline.com.
