Journey to the East: Now Is the Time

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

If you entertained the notion of working as an international reporter in Asia, now is the time. From China’s stellar growth contrasted with chronic social protests and human rights issues, to North Korea’s threats of war coupled with the ability – yes, even for Americans – to travel to the hermit kingdom and to Myanmar’s free press reforms and rarely visited thousand-year old Buddhist temples and white sand beaches, these are just some of the places and story arcs that will guide you to a new chapter in your career. Join Ramy Inocencio and Amy Yee – two accomplished Asian-American journalists based in Asia -- for a conversation on the opportunities in Asia and how you can make the jump for yourself.
