JOURNALISM AND WOMEN SYMPOSIUM
February 23, 2011
JAWs is a group of female journalists that actively supports other females through an e-mail list serve sharing jobs and ideas. And meets once a year in a cool place to listen to excellent (usually) female speakers and laugh a lot. It's a long weekend that allows everyone to recharge their batteries, renew friendships and remember why we love journalism and picked it as our chosen field.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
sooo many ways. i've gotten job leads, made life-long friends, felt that there was somewhere safe to go to talk about career decisions and upsets. and when i was traveling around the country, hawking a book I'd written, i was invited to stay with Jaws members all over the country -- some of whom i didn't even know.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
beef up its website to be a must-visit destination. now i rarely use it.
Professional with expertise in this field & i have found many job leads through this organization's vast list-serve.
