Adopt A “Canned”-Do Attitude

rosieriveter.jpgWidespread layoffs, cutbacks, and collapses are forcing thousands of media professionals to find new work or re-evaluate their career paths. Fortunately, industry experts with a handle on what the down economy means for job seekers are here to help.

Canned: How to Land on Your Feet, a free career transition workshop for journalists, will take place Thursday, Feb. 19 in New York. The panel of media veterans will address how news professionals can take the next step — whatever it may be — and how recently laid-off journos can make themselves more marketable to employers.

Speakers include Carol Jenkins, president of The Women’s Media Center and former news anchor and correspondent; James E. Mulvaney, president of Tactical Intelligence Services, Inc. and Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter; Spring Associates Inc. president Dennis Spring; and Ernest R. Sotomayor, assistant dean of career services at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.

Tickets are free, but capacity is limited, so register now to secure your spot.
