Application deadline is FRIDAY, March 6.
This coaching session is limited to 10 participants and will be led by former seattletimes.com senior producer Doug Kim, who is now managing editor of Microsoft Office Online.
From Doug: During this intensive workshop on repositioning yourself for a new career, we’ll assess goals, talk about how to market your skills to new industries and start working on revamping resumes. When we’re done, you’ll emerge with a new, focused strategy for the next
phase of your career. Bring a current resume and a laptop, and be prepared to share your career goals with your fellow participants. (What happens in the workshop stays in the workshop.) We’ll also have a guest appearance by Microsoft content management executive Jessica Reading.
This kind of intense coaching routinely costs $400. AAJA Seattle will offer this on a deeply discounted basis: $25 to members laid off in the past three months (or at imminent risk, like Seattle P-I members) and $40 to other members. This is a service for AAJA members only. We will make this available on a first-come, first-serve basis and will have coffee and pastries on site.
Preregistration is required. Please check with National if you are unsure about whether your membership is current. The phone number for AAJA National is (415) 346-2051.
To apply for the workshop, send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Reboot Your Career” in the subject line and drop off your check made payable to “AAJA” in a sealed envelope at The Seattle Times (attention: Nicole Tsong, AAJA chapter treasurer). The address is 1120 John St, Seattle, WA 98109.
You will be sent confirmation once your payment is received as well as details on the session’s location.
