We recently invited a grad student to visit the Free Press and to sit on for a shift with the copy desk to see what editing is like.
Afterward, she sent thank-you notes with memorable calling cards. The front looked like a regular business card, though in color. The back of one had a tiny tear-out graphic of the story she had worked on with the copy chief -- complete with headline and a word of thanks.
The back of the calling card she sent me had an itty-bitty printout of the MapQuest directions to the newspaper. When she had asked me how to get here, I had said that most editors would expect her to figure that out herself. She did.
How did she make these impression-making little cards? Adobe Photoshop.
Leave it to a non-journalist to introduce a new wrinkle to the job hunt.
