The changes in the publishing industry have altered the range of skills, creativity, and talent that publishers want in their employees. They are open to a wider range of experience and qualifications, but…the competition is stiff! This program will focus on must-have skills and information for those starting out or looking for new opportunities in the publishing industry.

Our panel of speakers will discuss the new realities of the publishing jobs market. Where are the next opportunities? What are the skills you need now?  Why is networking a key part of the hunt?  How can you turn an internship into a valuable professional experience and/or a new job?

Join us for a stimulating panel discussion; bring your questions and share your experiences.
