*Lesley Van Ness will be critiquing student anchor/reporter reels in the breakout room. If you would like your reel to be reviewed, please send your video link to email@example.com by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 10. Please note that not all of the reels will be able to be reviewed during the time allotted, but every student who sends in their reel will receive a notification about whether their reel has been chosen for the critique. Regardless of whether your reel is chosen, all are invited to join Lesley’s session to learn more about how to build a winning résumé reel.
Light refreshments for breakfast and lunch will be served.
