Career Connection: Defining your digital footprint

Making an impression on a potential employer starts long before an email or phone call. By then, your digital footprint has done the talking don't let it send someone walking.

'Career Connection: Defining your digital footprint' is a weeklong series of hands-on workshops to help you create and maintain the journalism/writing identity you want to showcase to sources, employers, and publishers.

The class will meet from noon to 1 p.m. ET daily, from Monday, May 10 to Friday, May 14. Designed to focus on accomplishing practical tasks in short bursts, each daily program will highlight parts of your digital identity -- social media channels and your portfolio site/blog. Register for one or all programs, which are available at no cost. Registration includes access to the video recordings and resources referenced in all sessions.

Columbia Energy Journalism Initiative

The Center on Global Energy Policy at Columbia University is excited to announce an open call for applications for the 2021 Energy Journalism Initiative seminar, which will be held online.

Rapid shifts are underway in the energy sector, new government policies are taking shape in the U.S. and other countries and climate change is getting more attention than ever before. It is essential that journalists have the knowledge necessary to report on energy with insight and nuance. They are key to improving the dialogue around energy and environmental issues, creating a well-informed public, and helping public and private sector leaders make sound choices about our energy future.

The program is open to journalists reporting on energy and the environment for print, broadcast and online news organizations, although preference is given to those relatively new to the beat with five or fewer years on it.
