Too often these days, the ABCs of journalism seem to be "Anxious, Beleaguered and Canned." But one of the best ways to secure your existing job or to find a new one is expand your knowledge and skill set. The motto of the National Press Foundation is "We Make Journalists Better." Well, better journalists have more job options. You're never too good, or too busy, or too broke, to consider the kind of mid-career training that can give you an edge. And that's what we offer, at no cost to you.
For media types who cover financial, lifestyle and retirement news, we have a program May 31-June 3 that will shed light on new retirement saving options, as well as the impact of the financial crisis on various demographics: retirees, wannabes, soon-to-bes, and worker bees. Supported by Prudential Financial, the sessions will be held in Washington, DC, and will likely include meetings on Capitol Hill as well as presentations by experts in every aspect of this timely topic. More information and the application are here.
Fellowships include airfare, transfers, three or four nights’ lodging (depending on flight schedules) and most meals. You'll find the application on our website, here. Do it now. Deadline is April 6.
These programs are for you.
