(Students only, but feel free to pass along the message!) If we don’t have enough student sign-ups by March 27 at 1 p.m., we will open up the event to AAJA Seattle members.
STUDENTS: Don’t miss this great opportunity from AAJA Seattle!
â€œPersonal brandingâ€ is about more than having a matching logo on your business cards, blog and Twitter profile. Itâ€™s about having a voice that people recognize in the industry and in your own personal sphere of interest. Itâ€™s also about knowing how to promote your voice — and yourself — to the people who care. We can show you how to get started. In this AAJA Seattle crash course, join producers from The Seattle Times and other regional media outlets to learn how to start (or improve) your blog and use social media strategies — skills that you can use in your personal lives, and carry into the newsroom. Oh, did we mention weâ€™ll have pizza?
Note: this is open to any student (not just UW). Â We’ll also be answering questions about applying for the Northwest Journalists of Color Scholarship program. Applications for the NJC Scholarship are due April 15. We’re looking forward to seeing you there.
You MUST RSVP! You can do so here.
When: Wednesday, March 28
Where: Mt. Baker Training Room, 6th floor, Seattle Times building, 1000 Denny Way, Seattle, 98109
