Tips from John Richardson

I was sick and absent from class last Friday, but from reading other posts, I learned:

You should be ready and willing for change in the communications field. People often move from job to job because of the constant change happening within the business. However, all the experience in different jobs helps further your career.

Portfolios are vital in communications. A strong one can land you freelance work, which is a great way to work on your own time while still making money. However, independent contract work requires good time management skills.

Communications is a creative industry; therefore, you should use your creativity when applying for jobs as well. The creativity will make you stand out and help attain your dream job.

Write. And write frequently. It doesn’t matter what it is for, you just need to become comfortable with it. Writing is a required skill in the industry, yet, not everyone has the natural ability to write well.
