With the introduction of Generation Flux, the new media marketplace has changed exponentially. These sessions will examine the progressive mentality that makes today's employees unable to accept the status quo, keeping them on a seemingly never-ending hunt for a better way of doing things -- or a new and different job. 


Registration for the Career Summit includes admittance into the Job Fair.


1 - 1:15 p.m.
Grand Ballroom C

Jills (and a Jack) of All Trades
1:15 - 1:45 p.m.
Grand Ballroom C

Companies want people who know a little bit of everything. Jacks and Jills are all over the workplace map, gathering skills and networking like mad. How do you get into position to be one of those employees? Or should you? What do you gain or sacrifice by being “a master of none” and what do you bring to the table? Our panel will focus on the employee who works for many and is beholden to none.  

Moves Like Jagged
1:55 - 2:40 p.m.
Grand Ballroom C

Just because you build it doesn’t mean they will come. A new J-Lab/McCormick Foundation survey finds that online news start-ups can use social media tools to distribute content, market their sites and track users. But most say they can’t lasso data to track whether they are turning users into supporters who will help their sites survive. A discussion of the four strata of engagement and successful engagement strategies.

Jumping the Line
2:50 - 3:20 p.m.
Grand Ballroom C

Entrepreneuring journalists don't have to wait to be knighted by a media company to start practicing what they learned in J-school. Now they start a website and report on the subjects that matter to them. Recruiters are always looking for these potential employees, perhaps more so than recent graduates with the standard internships. Our presenters demonstrated gumption and curiosity and self-reliance, ultimately leading to positions with other news organizations.

Start, Re-Start
3:30 - 4 p.m.
Grand Ballroom C

You jumped off the good ship “stability” (or you were pushed), and decided to start up your own media or tech company or work with others on one. Hear from three people who are blending social media, storytelling and tech into (hopefully) sustainable businesses.
