Society of Professional Journalists
Students have the opportunity to join the national Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) as well as their local student satellite chapter of the Maine Pro chapter of SPJ and Sigma Delta Chi.
SPJ's membership includes professional journalists as well as students pursuing a career in journalism. SPJ allows professionals from print, online and broadcast to stay informed on societal happenings and ethical standards. Students can network, continue professional development, and access a job bank as well as internship opportunities. Print and Broadcast students joining SPJ at NESCom® have the opportunity to highlight the respected organization on their resume, giving them the edge.
