Pro Con

3:30-4:20 p.m. Saturday, March 4

Pro Con is short for “professional conversations.” Meet media pros for personal chats about their careers — and your prospects.

Think you know what your dream job is? Find out for sure by asking someone who’s doing it now. Or maybe talk to a media pro who’s doing something weird — and getting paid for it.

Our media pros will hang out at small tables. You can move from table to table as often as you want, or sit for as long as you like. So bring a resume or portfolio for a quick critique. Or just ask for advice on what to do in college so you can target a particular job.

This event – now in its fifth year – always fills up fast. So don’t be late.

Here are the confirmed pros:


Lynn Walsh – NBC San Diego executive investigative producer

Danielle Mollette-Parks – San Francisco Chronicle art director

Jessie Schiewe – SF Weekly music editor
Macy Williams – assistant editor

Andi Galpern – product designer and mentor

Brandon Mercer – executive producer

Scott Strazzante – San Francisco Chronicle photojournalist
Jessica Christian – San Francisco Examiner photo editor
