Is Journalism a Dead End Career?

jobs-trouby-laurel.jpgAs more layoffs rock the media industry, that’s a question many writers are asking. On Monday, Laurel Touby and a number of other media experts will discuss the journalism job market at the New York Press Club.

The panel will address some dark questions: “Is journalism as we know it a dead-end career? Will the rise of ‘citizen journalism’ and the Web mean we’ll soon get our news from journalists with day jobs in some other industry?”

The line-up is strong: Leah Moses, Justin Peters, Win Sheffield, and Sree Sreenivasan. If you are still worried, mediabistro.com’s job listings are still adding work. The event will be held Monday, November 24th, 330 W 42 Street (8th & 9th) 33 floor. It runs from 6:30pm – 9:00pm.
