Research news organizations you want to work for> If you’re interested in working for a particular news organization, familiarize yourself with its website, social media presence and overall coverage. If you see coverage gaps, write them down and determine how you could help fill them. If there’s an opportune time, mention them during your interview (and make sure to note what the news organization does well, too).
I’m not even kidding, this is a great advice and well worth the effort. I’m now working full-time for an news org
I sort of stalked I researched thoroughly before and it helped me score a job interview and eventually freelance commissions, short-term contract and now a real/grown-up work. Feels weird bro.
