Meet The mediabistro Teachers!

Our “Meet The Teachers” soiree at Stone Creek Bar & Lounge last night brought a rare opportunity for our students (past, present and future) to mingle with the fantastic mediabistro.com professors.

New and returning students had 24 courses to choose from, like the Stiletto Boot Camp — an online workshop on writing for women’s magazines. Instructor and freelancer Cara Birmbaum shares what she’s learned from writing for Vogue, Elle, Glamour and more. “It’s fast-paced, which is the appeal of this course. It’s a very efficient.”

And don’t feel like after the course ends that your teachers won’t want to keep in touch. ”A lot of the students followed up with us,” says Jessica Kleiman, this year’s keynote speaker at our Job Search Boot Camp. “Which was great! They really connected during the Boot Camp.”

For students like Luz Barbosa, it was enough just having the opportunity to improve with the help of an attentive teacher. ”My instructor was very knowledgeable and helped us understand. He was patient and answered questions thoroughly, said the communications consultant. “For me, it was worth taking the course.”
