Industry insight headlined a recent classroom visit for journalism students at West Hempstead High School as New York Times reporter Emily Brennan shared numerous “tricks of the trade” with the class.
 
During the informative presentation, students learned the inner workings of a large news organization, such as the subjects they look to cover and how the opinion section differs from the daily operations of the newsroom. 

As the presentation continued, students learned that staff members possessing a diverse range of skills are necessary to ensure efficient operations across the organization. Brennan highlighted a number of essential positions in addition to reporters and editors, including computer programmers, filmmakers, photographers and social media experts, that work collaboratively to make the 24-hour operation successful.  

The visit served as an excellent connection to classroom topics and exemplified how skills covered during classroom instruction are applicable to real-world careers.
