My experience at OIDJ so far has been eye opening. I got to visit The Oklahoman, and what I experienced was not what I expected it to be.
The atmosphere was very modern and it felt very friendly. It did not feel intimidating to be there, while speaking to those who work and intern there I realized there are different parts that help the industry function and make it what it is. For example, I did not know they had a website, let alone an actual person that was specifically in charge of running the sports part of it. Or that they send out people to basketball games in order for them to blog, tweet or write about it at the event.
This intrigued me since I am a fanatic of the Thunder. Later on in the day, we gathered and discussed how to have a great interview, instead of having a horribly awkward one, and how to ask the right questions that will make the interview interesting.
Adding onto that, we later had a session about profiles, which frankly, I have zero experience with. However, it seems really fun to gather information of somebody while thinking about what makes them unique or interesting, while learning about asking questions that give a brief description of who they are.
Something that was not new to me was what Gaylord College have to offer. They have different majors one can explore, but learning a brief description of every single one of them left me in awe as to what major I might want to pursue.
So now, the question is: what exactly do I want to do at Gaylord College?
