Join us for an evening with former journalist Edith Coron, who is now a career coach. Edith will hold an evening workshop focusing on strategies for transition for journalists.
Few news organizations have Human Resources departments, or offer their correspondents career advice. Journalists are left to themselves when it comes to career development or – increasingly often nowadays – reinventing themselves altogether.
For those navigating new technologies and new media to those thinking of moving on to a new role or even a new career, Edith will explain the process of coaching and how it can help journalists with career development and transition.
DATE: Wed April 29th, 2009
VENUE: to be confirmed (likely to be Sanlitun)
ENTRANCE: free to FCCC members, 50 rmb on the door to non-members
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to give us an idea of numbers
