Conventional wisdom and Bureau of Labor Statistics data agree: journalism employment has struggled for a decade. A new analysis of 40 million online listings from Tow-Knight and Emsi suggests a more complex story: demand is high for specific job segments, and surging for journalism skills outside of news media.

This session is designed for:

  • Journalists trying to add skills prospective employers are looking for
  • Hiring authorities building out the newsrooms of the future
  • Anyone trying to understand a difficult to read market

  • Featuring

    SVP, Analytics, Emsi/CUNY
    Annalyn Kurtz
    Journalist, Freelance
    Stuart Muller
    Higher Education Consultant, Emsi
