The NABJ Digital Journalism Task Force and the Diverse Social Media Editors and Digital Journalists Facebook group is committed to helping journalists beef up their digital skills and help keep them relevant in ever-changing newsrooms.
Tonight we’re unveiling the first of a free series of digital skills webinars — New Year, New You, Part 2. At 8:30 p.m. ET, we’re holding our first webinar, “Tech & Tools Journalists Can Use.” Our panelists — Benet Wilson, Emma Carew Grovum, Ingrid Sturgis, Marissa Evans, Jeannine Hunter and Romy Camille — will share and demonstrate their favorite tools, websites, apps and technology. We’ll take your questions and the webinar will be recorded for those who can’t make it. Our media partner for this event is AllDigitocracy.org. You can still register, here.
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.
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!
