Life After The Newsroom Reminder

For any ex-journalists, or journalists who are thinking about becoming ex, a reminder:

Tony Carideo, Bruce Benidt and John Reinan — all former Star and Trib reporters — are hosting a gathering at 5:30 p.m. today, Aug. 1 at Fast Horse, 240 Ninth Ave. N. in the Minneapolis Warehouse District. We’ll talk about how journalists’ skills can apply in other lines of work. Also joining us will be Gary Hill, who left Channel 5 six months ago to work in communications for the Minnesota Senate DFL majority leader, and Jim McCartney, who left the Pioneer Press in February to join Weber Shandwick in health care public relations. And career counselor Lisa Dewey Joycechild will give some ideas on making your work fit you rather than trying to fit into a job.

All are welcome. Clothing optional.
