Panel 1: The Digital-First Journalism of Newspapers, Magazines and Web Content

Panel 2: TV, Audio, & Film in the Streaming Age
Podcasts, movies, even entire television series — it’s all on demand at our fingertips. But what was it like before Netflix, Hulu and Spotify, and where is the industry going?

Panel 3: A Day in the Life: PR, Marketing and Corporate Communications
What’s a typical day like for publicists, marketing pros and corporate communications execs?

Session B: 6-6:45 p.m.
Panel 1: Landing Your First Job: Tips from the Other Side of the Table
Landing your first job after school is no small feat, but a little preparation (and confidence!) goes a long way.

Panel 2: How to Use Social Media to Find Success in Your Career
From job postings on LinkedIn and Facebook to making the right connections on Twitter and finding inspiration and motivation on Instagram, social media can be an asset to your career if you know how to use it the right way.

Panel 3: Build Relationships Like a Pro: A Guide to Networking
