PULLMAN – Dozens of communication professionals will converge at The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication Tuesday, April 5, for a day of workshops, resume critiques and networking events with Murrow College students.
Charles Tillinghast, president of MSNBC Interactive News, LLC , will present the keynote address at 4:10 p.m. in CADD 21. A reception will follow.
“Old New Media: How Everything is Changing for the Companies that Changed Everything,” will explore how the largest Web content companies face the same threats as their traditional forebearers. These threats are prompted by a rapidly changing landscape dominated by mobile devices, social networking, advertisers and journalists.
“The historical concentration of media control is giving way to a new generation of journalists who are as likely to be entrepreneurs as employees of large media companies,” Tillinghast said.
In addition to Tillinghast’s speech, students will network with media professionals from regional advertising, public relations, broadcast and print news outlets, as well as from educational and other communication organizations. These professionals will conduct résumé critiques and workshops to help communication graduates network and compete in today’s challenging job market.
