Six December 2015 journalism grads regaled faculty members and other students with their career plans and favorite J-school memories in the Reading Room on Thursday, Dec. 10.

Jessie Webster, outgoing editor of The Daily Wildcat, has been offered a job at project 202, a design research firm in the Dallas area that helps companies build an experience that resonates with their audience.

Sarah Pelfini would like to write about food and culture and is looking into an opportunity in France. She praised the School of Journalism as being a close-knit group of faculty and students who support each other. 

Skyler Brandt said adjunct instructor Shannon Conner's sports journalism class "changed my life," and he hopes to do some local stringing work as he paves the way toward a dream job at ESPN.

Alexandra Adamson is doing a holiday internship for a magazine in Salt Lake City. She is enrolled in the School of Journalism's Accelerated Master's Program, with the goal of being a magazine writer.

Annie Dickman has accepted a paid internship with the Gannett design hub at the Arizona Republic. She said professor Nancy Sharkey's 105 class solidified her interest in journalism.
