Journalists in Transition: Mondays in October
September 19, 2008
The nature of work in American life is changing dramatically, and you must be prepared to address it. Layoffs and buyouts are a major part of the landscape, and you can learn to manage it or be managed by it.
Join veteran journalist and career coach Jackie Jones (www.jonescoaching.net) for a four-week course. Different topics will be addressed in each two-hour session:
-- Better manage your current situation, while you plan your next step
-- Decide whether a buyout really is for you and what to do if you take it
-- Find out how to stay in the industry or translate skills to a new career
-- Use sourcing, networking and other tools to create the career you want.
Dates: Monday, October 6; Tuesday, October 14; Monday, October 20 and Monday, October 27
Time: 6-8 p.m.
Place: Eric Friedheim Library Classroom
Cost: $40 for the four-session program for NPC members; $80 for non-members
Classes are limited to 15.
RSVP required. Call (202) 662-7507, or email Julie Schoo at firstname.lastname@example.org
