Mayborn Career Workshop
The University of North Texas' National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ) presents Mayborn Career Workshop.
"This will be Mayborn's first Career Workshop and will feature seasoned professionals from the DFW area," said Assistant Professor Gwen Nisbett, advisor of the UNT NAHJ chapter. "Students will have the opportunity to receive advice and feedback on landing internships or jobs during the resume and portfolio roundtables. Our hope is for the event to help prepare our students for their upcoming careers."
The event is free to all UNT students. We will also provide dinner for all attendees. We recommend students R.S.V.P. by emailing Olmar Vanegas, national student representative and UNT chapter president of NAHJ, at email@example.com.
Here's a list of some of our panelists:
- Hugo Balta, ESPN producer and national president of NAHJ Rebecca Gibson, corporate communications manager at Mary Kay, Inc.
- Kenny Molestina, anchor and reporter at CBS 11 Buck Choate, creative director at Marketwave

Professionals from Denton-Record Chronicle, Splash Media, Telemundo, Al Dia and more will also be attending.
"Each of us on the panel can remember that nerve-wracking first job interview or the blank computer screen waiting to be turned into a coherent resume," said Rebecca Gibson, corporate communications manager at Mary Kay, Inc. "I feel it's critical to pay forward the mentoring and support that helped get my own career started by participating in programs like the Mayborn Career Workshop. As a UNT graduate, it's especially fulfilling to help students get their careers started so they can one day share their successes and give back."Wednesday, March 26, 2014 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm
