Skills-Marketing Workshop for Media Professionals

I know I keep harping on knowing your skills and finding ways to adapt them so that you will be employable in the future. Well, at least I'm not the only one. MediaBistro is offering a workshop next Tuesday, March 31, tailored to just that topic (see details here).

"Same Skills, New Career: How to Market and Update Your Current Skills for a Changing Job Climate" promises to offer basic job-hunting advice paired with how to develop a media career-change plan. You'll also learn how to create and optimize your online presence, which is vital in the new recruitment paradigm (in other words, most potential employers are going to Google you at some point--look busy).

Consultant Jeff Lundwall leads the seminar at the MediaBistro offices on Park Avenue in NYC. Cost is $65 ($50 if you are a member of Avant Guild).
