Freelancing in journalism and mass communication was my favorite session of the week. I loved it. The panelists were three freelancers: Leslie Hancock, Susan Lahey and Lance Lawhon. The three went into detail about the pros and cons in being your own boss, and really informed the audience on what to expect when you go into freelancing. The panelists also emphasized how important networking is in this career. “Network, network, network,” Hancock said. “Get your name and face out there.” I loved this session. Leslie Hancock and Susan Lahey were so funny and informative, I definitely got a lot out of this session.
