Blog for a job
If you’re a journalism or communications student, blog and understand the importance of being web-literate if you want to get a job in the new media landscape.
From Shawn Smith at New Media Bytes – to journalism students, and by association journalists:
But the bottom line is this: If youâ€™re a journalism student (or anyone looking to succeed in mass comm), you need a blog. You need to learn how to cover a beat and write for a niche. You need to learn how to write for an audience and tap them for information. You need to be able to understand the web, or at least show a willingness to learn.
You’ve shown some initiative and taught yourself a few skills.
