We chatted with Joy Mayer about what it takes to successfully apply for engagement jobs. What story should you tell about yourself? What format should your portfolio take? What pitfalls should you avoid, especially when talking to hiring editors who don’t specialize in engagement?
We chatted with Terry Parris Jr. of ProPublica, Summer Fields of Hearken, and Julia Haslanger of Hearken about hiring for engagement. What should you look for in job candidates? What questions should you ask them? How is hiring for these jobs different from other journalism gigs?
We chatted about teaching engagement. How is engagement being taught to journalism students, and how SHOULD it be taught? Everyone’s welcome to this conversation with Lori Shontz, Joy Mayer and other educators.
