Oprah employees to join masses of unemployed media elites

Harpo Studios, headquarters of talk show host ...

Don't make security escort you out of the building

Sorry employees of talk show empress Oprah Winfrey. When the show ends, signing off after 25 seasons, Oprah may not be taking you with her to the Oprah Winfrey Network. TMZ reports that you should not look under your chairs to find any prizes to take home with you:

An Oprah insider tells TMZ “Oprah announced there will be layoffs after this season.”

via Oprah — Kaput in 2011 | TMZ.com.

Helpfully, there is some advice endorsed by Oprah.com on what to do once Harpo Productions shitcans you.

First, make sure you write a good resume and cover letter.

Once you’ve done that, here’s Jean Chatzky’s advice on how to find the right job. Also, how to find a job in a lousy economy – like this one!

And if those don’t work out, you can always take a sabbatical.

    About Me

    I'm waiting for the day when I can get the news directly into my brain. Until then, I'll be lit up by the electric glow of screens, chasing the latest breaking like the hopeless news junkie I am. Ever since the Encyclopaedia Britannica tried to launch a web portal ten years ago, I've seen many ends of the online news spectrum, from my time as a political news reporter for both RawStory.com and the Huffington Post to the better part of a year I spent running the late New York Sun's website. There have been a lot of other stops in between. Now I am your homepage editorial overlord. But I haven't let it go to my head. Yet.
