In the bustle of deadlines and daily demands, some journalists find it rare to get honest and proactive feedback. Your boss is too busy or didn't really watch your story when it made air. He/she promises to go back and "take a look" but you never hear back.
Why wait for the boss when you can get instant feedback from the professionals in a fast-paced and interactive session at #EIJ16.
Fashioned in "American Idol" style, you have a chance to take center stage, show your work, and let the pros react. The audience gets to share in the experience and learn too.
If you want to be one of the few who get a chance to be on stage, sign up now. Using the EIJ App, send a direct message to Janice Gin, Panel Producer, and wait for confirmation.
To prepare for your moment, please bring a DVD with your work sample. We'll want to show about 2 minutes of your work. So put the work you want the pros to see at the top.
See you there!
Here's the full session description:
