Lew Klein, president of the NATPE Educational Foundation, announced Wednesday that the group’s next Student Career Workshop will be held Saturday, Oct. 16, at KMOV-TV in St. Louis.

The half-day event features presentations from local speakers, including news reporters, cable executives and employees from local TV stations. Topics to be addressed during the presentations include preparing resumes, interviewing successfully, networking and developing a career strategy. The panel discussions will be followed by a general Q&A session.

The Student Career Workshops are held in midsize and major markets with diverse student populations. Students from schools in the surrounding areas are invited to attend the workshops free of charge. The goal of the event is to inform the students of the many areas available in the communications field and give them professional advice on starting their careers.

The Oct. 16 event is the NATPE Educational Foundation’s seventh workshop in the United States. Previous workshops have been held in New York, Miami, Los Angeles, New Orleans, San Francisco and Washington.
