It’s amazing, but the 42nd Annual NABJ Convention and Career Fair in New Orleans is now only 65 days away! So while the clock is ticking, NOW is the time to get ready for our convention.
You need to have a resume that’s on point, and you need to have an online portfolio to point potential employers to. It also doesn’t hurt to start either working on or sharpening up your personal journalism brand.
Lucky for you, the Digital Journalism Task Force did three great hour-long webinars on these very topics. So now is the time to review these webinars so that you’re ready to shine in New Orleans.
- Developing an Online Portfolio, with Michelle Johnson
- “Brand” New You, with Dr. Sybril Brown of Belmont University
- The Do’s and Don’ts of Resumes, with NABJ VP-Digital Benet Wilson, owner of ResumesByBenet.com
You need to submit an email address, but the webinars are free to view. Register for the convention here. I hope they help, and I look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!
