It was a sheer treat for the Vishwakarma University students from the journalism and travel & tourism department as they got a chance to interact with three leading names from the field of journalism. The occasion was a panel discussion titled “Education for Action” on the theme of ‘Career Opportunities for Budding Journalists’ organised by the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication on October 9.
The distinguished panel of guests included, Ms. Shital Pawar, Executive Content Curator (Sakal Media Group), Mr. Prasad Kulkarni, Principal correspondent (Times of India, Pune) and Dr. Radheshyam Jadhav, Deputy Editor (Hindu Business Line) and an adjunct faculty at the Dept. Journalism and Mass Communication at VU.
In a free-wheeling discussion that was moderated by Prof. Mayuresh Belsare, the panel members shared their views on a range of topics from cultivating sources, doing research based stories to developing various skills, opportunities and remuneration one can look forward to in this field. Lastly, the guests appreciated ‘What’s Your Syndrome’, the students’ journalistic initiative of reporting on the events in and around the campus. The guests encouraged the students advising them to make use of the Citizen Reporting App which is a conduit for getting published and hit the ground running.
