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.
Hi, I'm Theola. I'm a former journalist, and speaker and trainer on storytelling with purpose. I teach you how to tap into your talents to make an impact.
I work with journalists on career transition and have helped influencers like Hamilton biographer Ron Chernow and others tell their true story to connect to audiences.
After more than a decade as a reporter at The Washington Post, I pivoted my journalism experience to leadership positions in public education and the Obama administration. I learned that a journalist's skills are needed beyond the newsroom and can power the world for good. I call this "The Gray Side."
I created Life After Journalism to teach journalists to get the clarity and confidence they need to transform their news experience into new careers for impact and peace of mind.
