Advice from L.A. Times' hiring editor

Recently, I asked the L.A. Times hiring editor if he had any advice for young journalists. He e-mailed back:

"I can't emphasize enough the importance of summer internships. The more the better. In a competitive job market, editors will want to know that their entry-level hires will be able to hit the ground running -- on a wide variety of assignments. "
