In the last month, more than 1,200 jobs in media have disappeared either through numerous rounds of layoffs or buyouts at HuffPost, BuzzFeed, Gannett, Vice and others.
We’re focused on working together to help our community through these tough times. For our February meetup, journalists who have gone through layoffs will offer advice and tips on how to stay grounded and positive during this challenging time. We’ll also be sharing open jobs and other career resources.
You’ll hear from:
Carolina Moreno, former HuffPost Latino Voices editor
Megan Greenwell, editor-in-chief, Deadspin
Christopher Robbins, editor, Gothamist
Moderator: Mandy Velez, social media editor at the Daily Beast
We are giving out a limited number of complimentary tickets to recently laid off journalists. Please contact Elana Zak (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
