    Reading the thread on the new NYT hire was my first introduction to the METPRO program he apparently came from. Are there any others like it?

    They don't have to be for minorities or even the same format. I just want to feel like I'm doing something more productive than "get your resume on as many desks as possible."

    I don't know if Pulliam Internships are still around. I knew an SE who had one and he was mentored by writing coaches. But in the end, he still had to send his resume to tons of papers because he wasn't handed a job on a silver platter.

    Pulliam Fellowships are still around at The Indianapolis Star and The Arizona Republic.

    APSE does one. A friend was in it, and he said it was a good experience.

    There is the Poynter Institute, too. I worked with a couple of folks who have logged some time there and turned out all right.

    Pulliam Fellowship's a great program. Not quite MetPro (in that it's only for a summer). But they hook you up with some top-notch people.
    On your own in the job hunt, though, like Stitch said.
    I also know people who've done Poynter's six-week post-college summer program and done well by it.
