To Our Readers: Media May Be Down, But It’s Not Out

As even infrequent readers of this blog can see, the media industry has been wracked with closures, layoffs, hiring freezes and more. This note isn’t designed to run you through bad news you already know or add to those reports. Rather, it’s to take a moment amid our industry’s tumult to renew our commitment to bringing you news and information that sheds light on our media world throughout these challenging times.

Whether you’ve personally experienced our industry’s contraction or feel the anxiety shared by so many in our field, we want to remind you: opportunity still exists in our business. Media may be down, but it’s not out: mediabistro.com’s job board continues to list fresh jobs daily, and even organizations that have experienced contraction continue to post openings there.

Retrench, but don’t lay down — avail yourselves of all the offerings we design with just one goal in mind: to help you prevail in whichever aspect of media you wish to conquer. Finally, let us know if there’s anything further we can do to help you succeed and prosper.
