Future Tense? Yeah, the Future Makes Me Tense
I just got out of a meeting. My editors were talking about the influx
of new student interns over the summer. One of the editors mentioned
how this is basically the last cycle where they'll be accepting kids
with only print media experience. From here on out, student interns
will need multi-media experience. One of out veteran reporters noted
if that was case, she'd never have been accepted, which is probably
true of at least 60 percent of new staffs.
