    College courses to take are those in journalism and communications.

    First of all, you have to be photogenic. If so, get a Syracuse catalog and take as many of the communications courses similar to the catalog. Be prepared to develop a big brown nose and to walk away from any/all religious/ moral training. Above all, be in the right place at the right time.

    Do you have ANY idea how many people would want this job? I mean literally millions of people would appply for this job, probably tens of thousands that are VERY over qualified for it. Im sorry but only 1 person gets this job, only 1 person gets to be that person & I just cant see the realistic chance of getting this job unless you either:

    A. Sleep your way to the top (I wouldnt sugest degrading yourself this way)

    or

    B. Know the guy or have some very influential people know the guy who hires the person for this job...& even then it isnt a garuntee!
