AAJA Seattle Journalist Speed Mentoring Event
Are you an early-career journalist wondering about your next move? Maybe you're a student aspiring to be a reporter or editor or more? Then bring your business cards and resumes for this intimate speed mentoring event.

This fun event, sponsored by AAJA Seattle, will be 7 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 at the Seattle Times building, 1000 Denny Way, Seattle, WA 98109. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and networking starts right at 7:00 p.m.

You'll get to meet with some of the Seattle area's top local editors, managers and experienced journalists who can give you guidance and be a sounding board for your career questions.

Our roster this year includes:
Mark Baumgarten, editor-in-chief, the Seattle Weekly
Corinne Chin, video producer, the Seattle Times
Marcus Green, editor and founder, the South Seattle Emerald
Phuong Le, reporter, Associated Press
Jim Simon, managing editor, the SeattleTimes
Travis Quezon, editor-in-chief, the International Examiner

Phyllis Fletcher, managing editor, Northwest News Network
Venice Buhain, editorial director, Seattle Globalist
Joaquin Uy, Ethnic Media and Communications Specialist, City of Seattle
Anika Anand, cofounder, The Evergrey

Networking and mentoring is a great way to make connections and spark ideas. Our fast-paced format will allow all the mentors and the mentees to meet each other, and we hope this will be the start of some great professional relationships. Tickets are limited, so reserve your space as soon as you can.

A photographer will also be available for professional headshots for your LinkedIn profiles or website bios.

You get all this for free if you're a full, associate or student member of AAJA, NABJ/SABJ or SPJ. Tickets for the general public are $30. Bonus: if you're not already a member, the mentoring workshop will be free if you join AAJA Seattle at the event. Find out more about being a member at http://www.aaja.org.

Please contact aajaseattle@gmail.com if you would like to attend, but the fee would be a hardship for you.
