Wondering how to find assignments? There are so many avenues just waiting to be explored:
Create a profile that makes your abilities and experience “stand out” or shine — state clearly what your ambitions are, why you have chosen to concentrate on a specific field, and why you think you’re suitable. Detail what you can offer that others can’t.
Be sure to detail your skills, education, interests, and experience. Provide samples that showcase your prowess as a journalist. Display your knowledge of the company’s needs, your research abilities, and your willingness to go the extra mile. Back yourself up with reviews of your work as well as recommendations from other employers.
Perseverance and patience are the two cornerstones of building a great career in journalism – so be determined, plan ahead, and send out your profile to all concerned. If you send out a hundred, just a few may respond. But don’t feel dejected. Opportunities abound.
