April 2009: Reinventing a Journalism Career in the Digital Age

Wendy Parker joined 15,000 others among the ranks of former newspaper workers last year, but rather than lament her situation, Parker has embraced the change. Optimistic and encouraging, her story can serve as a model for those looking for life after newspapers.

I just got back from an interview to be the dean of a j-school. My pitch was pretty much yours: Teach entrepreneurial and digital skills; be different but keep the best of the old. I sensed the small (older) faculty didn't think newspapers were in trouble much; they couldn't imagine newspapers will ever go away. A couple of them had part-time gigs at local newspapers and they seemed complacent. No need to embarrass with too many details, but I wanted to pass along that some j-schools still don't get it.
