“The OpEd Project seminar is an invaluable professional resource. Far from the typical training that teaches a journalistic skill, the seminar teaches people how to define and articulate their ideas and skill sets in a concise, clear way that can reach a general audience. You learn how to understand and present yourself to the world. You learn how to articulate an idea and translate it into a publishable piece of journalism. You learn how your perspective can be useful to others.
What you take away from the seminar can be applied in nearly any professional area: an interview, a presentation, even in simple conversation. Making yourself accessible and understandable means that you can connect with more people, become influential in a broader sense, and in turn, attract more opportunities. The OpEd project mission is highly important yet surprisingly simple: define your unique expertise and tell the world.”
