Navigating Your Next Steps as a Mid-Career Journalist
February 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm$8 – $12
Experts reveal how to get unstuck and build the career of your dreams – Feb. 16, 6:30pm to 8pm
You’ve “paid your dues” and are now a respectable, mid-career journalist. But what’s next?
In this talk moderated by Insider’s Anna Medaris, editorial experts and recruiters will discuss how reporters and editors with a decade or so of experience can avoid stagnation and make their next move in a turbulent and fast-paced industry.
Panelists include: NBC talent recruiter Ali Stelzer, editorial recruiter and founder of The Talent Fairy Chandra Turner, author and “The Root” deputy editor Tatsha Robertson, Insider executive managing editor Lyndsay Hemphill, and URL Media CEO S. Mitra Kalita. They will tackle questions like:
- When do you know it’s time to change publications, leave the business, or make your own way in book-writing, teaching or freelancing?
- What are common mistakes when applying for jobs or vying for promotions?
- How do you move forward at work while juggling family, home and outside interests?
- And when is it OK to reject the hustle and “settle” on contentment?
