How to land a job in the digital age

Searching for a job is hard but landing a job is even harder. The career landscape is evolving, and the job search is evolving along with it. Personal brand, social media, digital footprint – what does it all mean? Do you need to be on Twitter? What about LinkedIn? Generic won’t make the cut any more.

Paul Cheung and I talked about strategies to stand out at “Landing a job in the digital age,” a session at the annual gathering of the LGBT journalists association, the NLGJA convention, in San Francisco on Sept. 5, 2015. Paul is director of Interactive & Digital News Production at the Associated Press and president of the Asian American Journalists Association.

During the workshop, we talked about what it takes to move you up the hiring priority list, from designing a resume to impressing your interviewer. We also talked about how to stand out — online, in print and in person. Because you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
