  22. 22. First impressions are best impressions How do you communicate the best “you” you can? • Personal branding • Your UVP • Selling yourself • Perfection • The Cover Letter • The CV • LinkedIn • Other social sites Do you understand what your target employer needs? • Where do you want to work? • What research have you done on the industry as a whole? • What do they really need? • How do they hire people? • What are their networks? …and you only have one opportunity to make a first impression
  23. 23. Learn How To Build A Bridge From Learning Into Employment
  24. 24. By Starting At Both Ends Simultaneously
  25. 25. Remember what happens when you don’t know what you are doing.
  26. 26. Does can anyone here explain the business model of the company where they are planning to work?
  27. 27. Why do you need to know about business and business models?
  28. 28. It is very simple: “The … reason to know business models is that journalists typically have no idea about their own ROI. Every media person can be measured via page views, ratings, attracting reader comments and expertise. There are also intangibles. Too often journalism folks don’t know where they fit in or how they look on the layoff spreadsheet…..”**From “The Business of Media: A Survival Guide” by Larry Dignan
  29. 29. • “…For instance I know what every blogger in my network is worth to me. When the cuts come it’s a simple exercise – you take out the biggest salary with the lowest ROI” Larry Dignan is the head of ZDNet, TechRepublic and Smart Planet
