It’s amazing, but the 39th Annual NABJ Convention and Career Fair, this year in Boston, is a little more than two months away. This gives you plenty of time to start getting ready now.
You need to have a resume that’s on point, and you need to have an online portfolio to point potential employers to. Also, it wouldn’t hurt to start either working on or sharpening up your personal journalism brand.
Lucky for you, the Digital Journalism Task Force did two great hour-long webinars in January on these very topics. So now is the time to review these webinars so that you’re ready to shine in Boston.
- Developing an Online Portfolio, with Michelle Johnson
- Building Your Brand, with Dr. Sybril Bennett
- The Do’s and Don’ts of Resumes, with Benet Wilson
You need to submit an email address, but the webinars are free. I hope they help, and I look forward to seeing you in Boston!
