Were you just laid off? Fear you’ll be next? Working in media has never been 100% stable. But lately. Ugh. It just feels like no place is safe.
It’s time to feel inspired about your career in content again!
Join Chandra Turner (that’s me!) and a select group of other editors (like you!) in an 6-week intensive boot camp. This virtual program will help you build your confidence and learn how to transition your editorial skills to roles outside of traditional and ad-supported media. We will work on getting your marketing materials in order (resume, Linked In), defining your unique skillset and expertise, and targeting potential employers. Our discussions will help you dissect job descriptions and their funky language, learn about roles available to editorially trained folks, and work through sticky issues surrounding applications, job interviews, networking, salary negotiations, and more.
Apply now! Camp starts the week of April 17*.

Because everyone’s availability is going to be different, the group will determine the weekly meeting time via a Doodle.
Why do I have to apply?
It’s just a quick survey. I want to make sure we get the right mix of people with similar career issues and no conflicts of interests (like, um, your boss in the same group). And to ensure that everyone is in the spirit of supporting each other.
