Use time from now until graduation to apply to internships, strengthen skills needed: video/multimedia. Continue to reach out to network and "B" contacts to get foot in door: Seattle Weekly, PSBJ etc.
Continue keeping on top of trends, network--will help if laid off, and/or increase job security
Would ideally start at smaller, local publications to larger, nat'l pubs like NYT, Time, USA Today, & if I had my way, Nat Geo. Abroad work with NGOs, specifically environmental: ex. Daniel Beltra. May be supplemented with part time jobs teaching, etc.
Potentially secure a job that would allow me to still work in the photo industry but without the need to compete with whippersnappers to run around with.
