“Some student newspapers have a buddy system that links incoming reporters to more experienced staffers; others assign a senior staffer to act as a writing coach.” - Ch. 2, The Student Newspaper Survival Guide by Rachele Kanigel, p. 13

I don’t think that’s something that has ever been tried by the Setonian staff. The “buddy system” seems unrealistic because I doubt people have that kind of luxury in the work place. It’s more sink or swim.

I agree that is more sink or swim. I would think that in the professional world that it's full of cut-throats. No one is going to take one by the hand and carefully curtail what needs done. They throw you into the shark infested waters and see if you survive or get eaten.
