Presentation for the Future Writing Online panel at the Creative Edge Conference at the University of East Anglia.
Writers and communicators are essential within creative industries, businesses, not-for-profit organisations and charities. Join UEA graduates and employers at the Working with Words: Creative Edge Conference and discover a range of potential careers, including advertising, marketing, public relations, journalism, film, television and more.
Digital technologies have transformed the way we communicate and work. Careers that involve writing and communicating now have digital at the forefront. While traditional roles are being reinvented, new ones are constantly emerging. What opportunities are available to the graduates of 2015? How tech savvy do you need to be? If everyone's writing online, how do you rise above the noise and establish an income for your writing and communication skills?
A response to the challenge of why you might write online as a graduate/soon-to-be candidate for employment.
