Seniors (or those who plan to graduate): good advice

A post on the blog Innovation in College Media last Thursday is aimed at Journalism grads and it's mopre insightful than most comparable advice -- plus it's fairly applicable to a lot of fields.

Valuable for seniors thinking of preparing to search for jobs, and for undergrads a bit late out of the gate for internships, it's main thoughts are
* get real
* know the biz
* don't be stupid
* brand yourself
* don't blame others
* know where you want to work
* don't limit yourself
