Speakers at Jan. 31 Career Development event

In the brave new world of Journalism 2.0, what can we learn from new approaches to journalism? Where can out-of-work journalists look to for opportunities?

These are among the questions that will be tackled on Saturday, Jan. 31, at a one-day symposium at the University of Washington’s Haggett Hall. Here are some of the journalists on our panels:

David Cohn, Spot.us
