The first of what we expect to be two programs aimed at former Star employees looking for their next career will be held Saturday at IUPUI’s campus.
“Celebrating Service, Looking to the Future” will offer some perspectives on careers in news, public relations and, generally speaking, life after the Star from people who know – former Star staffers themselves.
The event will be held at room IT 160 in IUPUI’s Informatics Building, which sits at the corner of Michigan and West Streets. It will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with lunch provided by the Guild.
Former Star staffers Kevin Corcoran and John Strauss are spearheading this effort, with help from many others. They’re putting together a panel of folks to address key topics such as “The Next Steps.”
This effort is also intended to offer a thank you for your good work and some fellowship time, since many folks didn’t have a chance to say a proper goodbye to their friends and colleagues.
Already, there’s a Facebook page, “Celebrating Service, Looking to the Future,” where you can find more information and let us know if you’re coming. If you have other questions, contact John Straus at firstname.lastname@example.org or myself email@example.com.
Hope to see you there.
