What it takes to build a 'meme team' and tips for early-career journalists
Happy Monday! Skim for your weekly roundup of jobs, industry readings, resources and more.
✨ ‘Your advice for early-career journalists’: Alex Sujong Laughlin wrote for Poynter’s The Cohort newsletter about what early-career journalists are looking for in a newsroom, and she connected with folks who create tools for them on their advice for those just starting out.
📱 ‘Meet the editor building a “meme team” at the Los Angeles Times’: Sarah Scire of Nieman Lab talked to Samantha Melbourneweaver about how she defines audience work, the roles she’s hiring for and what it means to “get weird” online.
📝 ‘Making the case for your ideas and team’: The Online News Association is hosting a series of leadership conversations with women in journalism, including one where attendees will “learn new strategies to demonstrate the value and impact of your ideas and your team’s vision.”
The session featuring Amy King of the Los Angeles Times, Irene McKisson of AZ Luminaria and Nadine Ajaka of The Washington Post is scheduled for Thursday, November 4, at noon ET.
