19 Mar

Finding your way to a career in communication

1) Engage professionals in your chosen field
2) Be published in your field or in an area of your interest
3) Internship in your field. Even an internship in a midrange company can be incredibly helpful for securing jobs and making contacts. (Outside an internship, pick work in organizations which mirror the responsibilites you want to have in the future.)
4) Volunteer work in your filed (formal or informal)
5) Develop a portfolio of projects in your field. Store your portfolio in 2 places (one for backup)
6) Engagement with organizations, events, trends, and publications in your field
7) Networking in your field in the real world and/or online (for instance Linked In and Twitter)

Start developing skill sets in communication, creative, and content related areas.
