Where are our grads?

With the latest National Post cuts affecting the Parliamentary Bureau in Ottawa, and Ottawa Citizen offering buyouts to some of its staff, you can be sure some people in the journalism field  (and some current and prospective students)  are wondering what the future holds for them, and for finding a job.

On LinkedIn today, one of my former students announced she is now working at 570 News in Kitchener as an intern.  That got me to wondering where the Centennial College Journalism graduates are working these days.

So I’ve started a list. It’s not comprehensive. And I’ve been at Centennial for 10 years. But it’s pretty impressive. Feel free to add yourself, or let me know where you are. And it doesn’t have to be journalism jobs!
