Webcast: Land Your First Media Job
Tuesday, July 31, 2012 from 4:20 PM to 5:20 PM (EDT)
Limited to the first 150 signups.
Landing your first media job means knowing who to approach -- and how to get their attention. Having a great resume and cover letter gives you an advantage, but they're not the deciding factor of who gets hired.
In this free webcast -- limited to the first 150 signups -- web, marketing, and publishing professionals will discuss what it takes to jumpstart your career in media. We’ll discuss techniques for making sure your resume gets to the right person, how to best highlight your past experiences, and why timeliness is your greatest asset. We’ll also cover how to maximize the potential of your job search with online resources, and how to translate college success to real-world skills an employer looks for.
We’ll answer your questions about the benefits of internships, how to use social media to your advantage, and how to establish a personal connection with a potential employer. Panelists will discuss different types of media opportunities, how to get your foot in the door, what you can do as alternatives until your dream job comes along, and what to expect once you're hired.
