From the moment I stepped onto the set of Saturday Night Live at NBC's historic 8H studios, to the final comic performance that delighted a sold-out crowd, the fourth annual Ladies Who Laugh was a thrill. Ladies Who Laugh was my first New York Women in Communications, Inc.
It began with a laugh - and with some ladies. Last summer during my internship at Seventeen.com, I heard the term New York Women in Communications mentioned in the elevators, at the Hearst cafe, and by the coffee machines on the 17th floor (aka my daily afternoon pick-me-up spot). So I did some research. The more I read about NYWICI, the more I was enthralled.
It is no secret that this is a tough job market. Why else would New Orleans-based comic strip "Dustin," about a 23-year-old with no job, suddenly make its debut in about sixty newspapers nationwide earlier this month?
New York Women in Communications Foundation's annual Ladies Who Laugh event lived up to its name. The July 22 event was sponsored by NBC Universal and held at NBC's Studio 8H, the same studio as Saturday Night Live.
