JSkills: Launch Your Life After Journalism
Find Purpose in a New Career
One day journalists are shining a bright light and creating the first draft of history. The next day you could be told you're no longer needed.
More change in the media industry is journalism's new reality. You have tremendous skills, and you want to be prepared. But how do you make a career change? Journalists are unique. A headhunter can be too narrow in their focus. And a career coach may give advice that is too generic.
Meanwhile, your career transformation won't happen on your own.
The JSkills: Life After Journalism course is for journalists, created by a journalist. It is a clear plan for you to follow so you can go from UNCERTAIN to CONFIDENT about your career transition.
- CLARITY: Get in touch with the values and passions that are most important to you so they can drive your "What's Next" journey
- SKILLS VAULT: Uncover hidden insights and create a go-to bank of transferable skills and experiences that you can use to draft cover letters, update your resume and apply to jobs.
- POWER CIRCLE: Nurture and grow the number of people who are invested in and can support your transition.
The JSkills: Life After Journalism course gives you the tools, strategies, and guidance to go from the newsroom to your new career.
I help changemakers and influencers tell their story to spark action and create change.
I got my start at The Washington Post where I wrote stories that influenced policy and shaped events (plus I interviewed 35,000+ people). I have led national branding and communications campaigns for nonprofits, private companies and government, including the Obama administration.
Social change is long overdue. I created Raise Your Voice, a community that helps Black changemakers turn your ideas and opinions into persuasive writing that leverages resources so you can remake the world.
