This blog is being published by Jodi Schneider, a veteran journalist, trainer, recruiter and manager. Jodi started the blog in October 2009 after leaving her position as training director at CQ in Washington, D.C. In December 2009 she joined the Washington bureau of the American Banker newspaper as a senior editor. She writes about the world of work and finding work, with a D.C. focus, but tries to make her tips and strategies broadly applicable. She also hopes to use this space as a clearinghouse for job leads, tips and ideas about finding work — especially for journalists “in transition” after having been laid off, taken a buyout or just searching for their next chapter!
