When asked if she recommends SEJ membership to her colleagues, Jordan said, "Yes! Being a journalist can be stressful and hard, but SEJ members are always happy to help out with technical questions, interview recommendations, job openings, etc. I also recommend folks take part in SEJ's mentor program. I stay in regular contact with my first SEJ mentor from undergrad." Join Jordan at SEJ today!
