Are you an English-speaking journalist in Asia? You can still register for New.Now.Next International Media Conference (aka N3Con) at Hong Kong University on June 6 to 8.
You’ll get unparalleled access to Asia-Pacific editors, major news anchors and print journalists and experts in the digital, diversity, press relations and social media fields. You’ll also have exclusive access to resume critiques and potential job leads. Check it all out: www.n3con.com. Registration is HK$1,000, or about $130 in U.S. dollars.
I’ll be speaking at a session on “Landing a Job in a Digital Age” on June 7 at 5:45 p.m. The other panelists are Paul Cheung, AAJA president and the AP’s director of interactive and digital news production based in New York, and J.L. Gatewood, AAJA Asia chapter secretary and Taiwan-based photojournalist for NMAtv/TOMOnews.
We were inspired to create this session based on the questions we got at last year’s AAJA Asia media conference about how to network for your career. 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. In this workshop, learn what it takes to move you up the hiring priority list, from designing a resume to impressing your interviewer. We’ll do interview role-playing with workshop attendees who want to work through specific scenarios.
We’ll teach you how to stand out — online, in print and in person. Because you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
