Thanks to everyone that showed up on Wednesday! A lot of new faces and a lot of great discussions, including a terrific talk on landing that assignment from Maria.
A handful of topics from yesterday's meeting included:
- Get Out: If you are looking to land an assignment, you need to get out there! That means have your own spot on the web - through mediabistro.com or by having your own website.
- Managing Online:
- Show Off: Make sure you have a place to show off your portfolio. Pick a handful of your best work so you interested parties can easily view your work.
- Notes: Take a notepad and pen with you wherever you go - you never know when a great idea / story will appear!
- New York Marathon: Why run? What do you do the hour / day / week after finishing the race?
- SBDC: The Small Business Development Center is a terrific resource for anyone interested in all aspects of business. (If anyone is interested, I visit the Columbia campus once a month and it's VERY helpful!)
