I started to do this then got worried my “drawing blood from Stanford freshmen” answers would make me Elizabeth Holmes so I switched tack and got... Peter Theil! Be afraid .

Some stories reinforce your faith in humanity, showing the glory of the human spirit in times of distress, and the way that restaurants bring out the best of society. This ... is not one of those stories.

You are misquoting what I said, which is not to dismiss the need for some pro experience. My advice? Don't insult editors on Twitter. (Hint: The Comic Sans tweet is about professionalism.) I also offered direct advice and many took me up on it. You chose differently. Good luck!

All of ours are paid. We also pay freelancers, incl. students who do not come from wealthy families.

Thanks for sending to me. SFGATE is an independent site from our newsroom. (We are -- and we have copy editors.) But I will pass this along!

Then they should come up with a more impactful and less redundant way to introduce themselves. We don't start news stories with "this is a story about sewer access fees." Same theory holds true with a cover letter.

I can only speak for myself, but I prefer interns who haven't had a slew of metro internships for exactly this reason. I also think some of the "elite" outlets have the worst internships because the students don't actually get out and report on a regular basis.

We only offer paid internships, and most companies I know of do the same. There are also paid freelancing opportunities in a wide variety of media.

That's enough for today. I actually love reading resumes from aspiring journos. I think many of them don't get advice about how to do it well. So if you're one of those people, feel free to ask someone who knows. That includes me if you don't know who to ask. :-)

There is a resume template with bubbles you fill out to show your expertise in various areas. Don't use it unless you're ranking your proficiency with language/software/coding languages, etc. If you have 3/5 dots for writing, it makes me wonder why you would want to be a writer.

My resume fills two pages. So yours probably doesn't need to cover five.

An internship or other experience in a professional newsroom is a key thing to have on your resume. I see a lot of students who have only worked at their school papers. That's a good start, but don't dismiss need to get outside that student newsroom.

Please make sure your links work! Maybe 30 percent of links I see are broken.

Verbs are your friend! Managed, spearheaded, uncovered, pitched, unearthed.... Cliches are your enemy: "In the wake of," "threw in the deep end..." etc.
