August 3, 2017 01:30

Join us at Excellence in Journalism, September 7-9 in Anaheim to take the next step in your career in broadcast and digital media journalism. There will be over more than breakout sessions, discussions of the important journalism issues of the day and the chance to meet some of the biggest names in the business.  It’s the perfect place to look for your next gig.  Here’s why:

Get Demo Reel Critiques
Is your video or audio reel as good as it can be? Before you hit the career fair, sit down with the Reel Media Group’s Demo Reel Bootcamp coaches at Booth 700. Our partners at RMG have helped hundreds of on-air talent and producers through their signature bootcamps, craft reels to showcase their true ability to be a storyteller. During EIJ, bring a link and meet our team of experts who will dissect your montage, your stories and find the format that will get you noticed. Critiques for your digital or paper resume and social media profiles are also available.

Meet News Directors
To get that next job, you have to meet the person in charge. News directors from the country's top television and radio groups will be at EIJ17, and the three-day conference provides a great opportunity to talk with them. In addition to all of our training sessions, we offer events like the opening night reception, luncheons, banquets and more. It's all about networking, and the people you need to know will be there.
