What Color Is My Freedom Parachute?

By on 12.11.08 | 12:55PM

I'll be speaking at the America's Future Foundation roundtable today. The topic is focusing on how to succeed as a conservative/libertarian in a career of your choosing, and I'll be the journalist of the crew. Of course, take the advice from a young journalist with a grain of salt, but I'll be speaking about the mistakes I've made as well as the good ideas. Hopefully, you'll benefit from my own meandering experience.

The blurb is here:

Tonight: 6:30pm - 9:00pm
The Fund for American Studies
1706 New Hampshire Ave. NW
Washington, DC

What Color is My Freedom Parachute?

Given the daily headlines, the short-term outlook for freedom looks bearish; your career investment in freedom is long-term, however. At the next AFF Roundtable we will discuss strategies, tips, and pitfalls to building a career working in the Conservative/Libertarian movement. Our panelists will discuss and debate questions like: how to find your dream job, how to become the next Ed Crane/Ed Feulner and how to make a real living in "the movement." In addition we'll take your questions. Our panelists will include Kristina Rasmussen (National Taxpayers Union), Sally McNamara (Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom- The Heritage Foundation), Mike Flynn (Reason Foundation) and J.P. Freire (American Spectator). Chaz Cirame (ALEC) will moderate. This event will also launch AFF's latest venture, our new online Career Center.

This Roundtable will take place December 11th at The Fund for American Studies (1706 New Hampshire Ave NW). Drinks at 6:30 pm, panel begins at 7:00 pm. Roundtables are free for AFF members and $5 for non-members. Please RSVP to cindy@americasfuture.org.

Needless to say, if you're an intern or an entry-level employee, the tips we discuss will have some significance to you in a broad sense. I've plagiarized a number of them from mentors and accomplished friends, and I'm looking forward to passing them along.

Added benefit: This is a conservative event that will likely NOT feature tributes to Reagan. Just saying.
