Mediabistro Job Search Boot Camp Begins Tomorrow



It’s not too late to register for Mediabistro.com’s job search boot camp, which begins tomorrow and costs $145. Each week for four weeks there will be a live online presentation and in between presentations you can catch up in a special form for classmates, complete homework assignments, and (we hope) land a new job.
