Workshop Recap: My First J-Job
On Nov. 19, about 25 early career and student journalists gathered at the former Middletown Press headquarters for CTSPJ’s “My First J-Job” panel.
Panelists were: Mike Fallon, public relations professional at the Middlesex County Chamber of Commerce; Marcus Harun, TV and web news producer at Fox 61; Juliemar Ortiz, town reporter at the New Haven Register; and Kristin Stoller, town reporter at the Hartford Courant.
The discussion, moderated by CTSPJ board member Jordan Otero, covered topics including the job search, adjusting to life after college graduation and the everyday triumphs and challenges that come with being an early career journalist.
The event was streamed live on Periscope and the group headed to First and Last Tavern for informal networking afterward.
