This blog is written for the staff of the Seattle PI, one of two major metro dailies in Seattle. The PI was put up for sale on January 9, and if a buyer isn't found, it will likely close.
Since it was announced that the PI will likely stop printing, we've been running an in-house training program to give our staff more of the skills they need to be competitive in today's job market.
Our first session covered the places you can go online to find jobs -- the links discussed in that session are all at www.inserttexthere.com. You can learn everything we covered by clicking on the job site links and exploring those sites.
We also covered an overview of skills print journalists should consider acquiring. You can find those recommendations here; the link to this page is at the top of inserttexthere.
