Bookings are open for my one-day course How to get a job in journalism on 10 March in London. It’s run in partnership with journalism.co.uk and the cost is £99 plus VAT. The last course was fully booked and well-received by all who attended.
The course provides basic advice on how to maximise your chances of finding a first job, or a new job. It will be plain to understand and it will cover how to navigate through the jargon and confusion of the new media world as well as providing advice on more basic issues such as how to present yourself in person, in writing and online.
Details, and a booking form, can be found by clicking the link on the right or in the body of this text. But as a taster, areas covered include
making the most of your core skills, identifying your subsidiary skills;
building your CV;
presenting yourself in person;
creating an online presence;
social media – making it work for you;
networking – how to do it and why it is important;
industry trends – how to stay ahead;
what makes journalism different;
how to use your skills elsewhere.
The course is near Liverpool Street, London. At £99, it shouldn’t put too much strain on the budget, either.
