SF event

NerdWallet.com is hosting a free panel discussion, “Risk/Reward: How Journalists are Redefining Careers Outside Traditional Media,” in San Francisco on March 12.
The program will start at 5:45 p.m., Thursday, March 12, at NerdWallet HQ, 901 Market St., San Francisco. (NerdWallet’s HQ is located right above the Powell Street BART station — take the 5th St. exit from BART.)
The panelists will include journalists who have made bold career choices: leaving newsrooms for tech startups, transitioning into product roles, becoming entrepreneurs, etc. Attendees will have an opportunity to hear from and meet Marisa Wong of SlideShare, Todd Lappin of Facebook, and Stacey Delo, founder of maybrooks.com.

Also, NerdWallet will give away free professional head shots (on-site) for the first 30 attendees, and supply “lots of great food.”
Getting there via public transit: From SJSU, take the free DASH Shuttle (from Fourth St at Paseo de San Antonio @ 3:27 or 3:47 p.m.) to San Jose Diridon transit center. Take Caltrain (@ 3:44 or 4:05 p.m.) north to Millbrae Station; at Millbrae, switch from Caltrain to BART (leaving Millbrae @ 4:50 or 5:05), get off BART at Powell Station (arriving @ 5:31 or 5:36) in SF.
P.S. If you don’t already have a Clipper Card, remember to allow time to buy Caltrain and BART tickets.

Writing Center

good-writing-is-hard-workIf grammar is not your game, and I’m starting to bug you about writing problems such as sentence fragments and passive voice, you might to consider visiting the SJSU Writing Center. Located in Clark Hall, the Writing Center offers one-on-one tutoring, skill-building workshops, and online writing resources. Check them out at:  http://www.sjsu.edu/writingcenter.

If, on the other hand, writing is your game — and your writing, editing and communication skills are pretty darn stellar — you might be interested to know that the Writing Center is planning to hire some new tutors. Here’s the link to the center’s jobs page: http://www.sjsu.edu/writingcenter/jobs.
