ATHENS, Ohio (Jan. 12, 2012) – The 10th annual Scripps Senior Saturday will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, January 28, 2012, in Scripps Hall. This free event will be sponsored by the Scripps Society of Alumni & Friends and assists students in beginning their careers in the industry. Seniors have the opportunity to receive résumé critiques, as well as advice on their portfolios, cover letters, job hunting strategies, and more.

There will also be two keynote speakers, Meghan Louttit and Ryan Lytle, both whom graduated from Ohio University. Each will talk about how students can create their own brand and how to get their career started in a competitive job market.

Additionally, there will be a presentation from Andy Alexander, a veteran journalist and Ohio University alumnus, and a panel of new graduates. Later in the afternoon, there will be professional panels to give students the opportunity to connect with professionals and alumni in their fields.

Due to limited space, this event is for senior journalism students only, and those interested in attending should email Debbie Depeel at with their name and choice of professional panels by the end of the day on Friday, January 20.
