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.”
