    I'd always heard about the "too many" argument. Sending out a dozen was an attempt to balance variety with volume. In the future, thanks to these helpful tips, I'll be sure to trim it down a little.
  2. I'm wondering if a three-part series counts as one clip. The job I'm applying for has a specific number of clips requested, so I don't want it to appear I'm sending more than asked. My guess is series count as one clip, but I thought I'd throw it out there to see what others think.

    Tailoring the package to the job is crucial. And the biggest part of this is understanding whether your potential boss will see you first as a reporter and then a writer, or as a writer and then a reporter. If it's a competitive beat, the reporting is what will get you hired. Assuming that you're not so bad as a writer that your stuff has to be fixed all the time.
