Just this weekend the Career Launcher launched. It is a course comprised of ten modules that will assist new reporters as they bridge the gap between graduation and their first job. It covers several important types of jobs new reporters are likely to run into, including plaintiff medical, personal injury, divorce, interpreted, corporate rep and medical depositions. At $100 for members and $175 for nonmembers, it’s an affordable complement to traditional reporter education. It does seem prices will rise in August, so please tell a new professional about it today!
For those attending the convention, the Utah Court Reporters Association will be holding a party at Margaritaville 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. on July 30, 2021. Proceeds from the event will go to the National Court Reporters Foundation, which is one of the philanthropic organizations in our profession. Check out the flyer I stole below!
As an aside, many of my contemporaries run discussion groups with fairly strict rules or a specific purpose. There are reasons for that and I won’t disparage it. If you’re on Facebook, feel free to use my Stenonymous group for any field-related reason. Self-promotion is allowed. I will generally not censor discussion there in the same way I do not generally censor discussion on this blog. I may chime in if I really vehemently disagree with something, you’re being really nasty without some kind of attached reason, your comment is spam, or if I think your comment might hurt you, but I’m not going to play policeman where I can avoid it.
The next article may shock everybody. I would just urge people to read to the end. We lead busy lives. It can be very easy to read a headline, make some snap assumptions about what the article will be about, and pass it by. This one’s worth reading.
