Chicago-based marketing and communications agency M. Harris & Co., the Chicago chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists, and the Chicago Headline Club are hosting a webinar next Wednesday titled “Life after Journalism.”
In this 90-minute webinar, former Chicago Tribune managing editor Jane Hirt (now a marketing and communications consultant), former tech reporter Wailin Wong (now of Basecamp) and former Tribune, Post and Inquirer staff writer Kayce Ataiyero (now of the Joyce Foundation) will discuss how they found work they enjoy outside media.
They’ll talk about skills reporters own that are transferable — and coveted — outside the newsroom. They’ll discuss job options out there — in fields you might not expect — and provide a roadmap for those seeking life after journalism.
The panel will be moderated by M. Harris & Co. creative director Kevin Pang.
