  16. 16. Getting Noticed and Hired in Media: How I Used Social Video to Land an Internship (and Job!) Grady Smith @gradywsmith
  17. 17. ∗ You can’t fake engagement with a brand ∗ Be a fan of the magazine you want to work for ∗ Understand its tone/voice Know Your Audience This is a selfie I took in 2010, long before I had ever step foot in the EW offices. *Mind you, I am not endorsing selfies.
  18. 18. You Could Even Make a Video
  19. 19. • It’s a good thing to have a niche. • Being well-rounded is essential, but remember it’s what sets you apart that is your selling point. • What are you passionate about? The box office? Rap music? High-end fashion? Brand Yourself Early
  20. 20. “One of the highest honors that you could have as an actor is to be typecast, because that means that you’ve done a significant amount of work in one specific realm.” Listen to Stephen Amell The Arrow star was recently asked if taking the lead role in Fifty Shades of Grey might cause him to be typecast in arrogant hunk roles.
  21. 21. • Be a Southern gentleman/belle. • Media can feel like a casual industry, but don’t get too casual during an interview. • Dress nicely. • Thank you notes! Thank you notes! Thank you notes. They’re always appreciated. Mind Your Manners!
  22. 22. I once wrote a short letter to the director of Broadway’s Newsies, just to tell him I loved the show. In return, he wrote me back and invited me to be a part of the show for a one-night cameo. A Note on Notes
  23. 23. • Respond to emails promptly. • Address your cover letter to a specific person. Do NOT simply write ‘Dear sir or madam’. • Meet all deadlines with time to spare. Internship interviews are often already being set up before the cut-off date for applications. Do Sweat the Small Stuff
  24. 24. • Sometimes, it can be hard to know what positions are open at a place you want to work. So ask! • If you have a connection to someone at a publication, reach out (but don’t be overbearing). It Can’t Hurt to Ask
  25. 25. It’s Q+A time. Type your questions in the chat window. Questions?
  26. 26. + The Power of a Positive Internship: How to Leave a Lasting Impression Anywhere and Land a Dream Job Erin Hendry, People Stylewatch
  27. 27. +
  28. 28. + My Role as Assistant Photo Editor  Extensive celebrity photo research for beauty, fashion, trend stories, etc;  Managing the photo libraries and archives on MediaGrid;  Looking for and pitching images that relate to a story;  Looking for and pitching images that create an idea/story;  Negotiating photo usage fees as well as photo credits.
  29. 29. + My Role as an Intern  Reviewed up to 90k images daily on MediaGrid and pulling celebrities reflective of the brand;  This allowed photo editors to seek out images that applied to stories for each issue .  Assisted the photo coordinator in shooting the products to make the story boards for the beauty and fashion departments;  Packed and messengered merchandise to and from photographers’ studios;  Became freelance photo coordinator for two weeks during the photo coordinator’s vacation.  Provided direction to photographers on how merchandise should be shot.
  30. 30. + How To Get The Job or Internship  Apply to anything and everything you have an interest in.  Not applying means you are never even considered!  Take advantage of your school’s career center or whatever resources your major might have to be the most connected in finding out about internships.  I found the Time Inc. internship through our Journalism department’s weekly career emails.  Give 100% on your applications and make sure you are proud of what you are submitting.
  31. 31. + The List of Always  Show up on time.  Wear clothing reflective of others in the office (if not a bit dressier).  During your downtime always ask for other things to help with.  If someone says “I don’t know,” find something to improve.  Try to take on responsibilities that reflect a real job and prove you can manage them.  This makes everyone in the office see and treat you more as an employee instead of an intern.  I was the first intern to do the daily pull off MediaGrid for the photo editors.  Be positive.  Respect your coworkers and build friendships with them while keeping it professional.
  32. 32. + Success in two parts. Poster design by Anthony Burrill
  33. 33. + How To Think Ahead Find a mentor.  My photo director (now my boss!) was an amazing mentor and taught me so much about the industry. Treat everyone in your office with respect.  The industry is small and it is very likely you will work with the same people again at some point in your career, so it is important to be respectful towards everyone (including fellow interns). About halfway through your internship start asking coworkers if they have heard of any openings or opportunities.  A coworker notified me of an internship opening at InStyle where she was an intern- because of her I got the internship at InStyle!
  34. 34. + How To Think Ahead, continued  Hang onto your work and start to build a portfolio if you haven’t already.  Keep helpful tools that could be useful in future internships/jobs.  I held onto my notebook and papers from my internships just in case I would ever need them in the future. When I started to interview at StyleWatch again, it was helpful to look back at what I had kept from the internship to refresh my memory of how things worked there.
  35. 35. + After the Internship  Keep in touch.  I was lucky enough to work 3 floors below StyleWatch when working at InStyle, so I stopped by every once and a while to say hi and show my face.  Look for opportunities.  Mediabistro, Ed2010 and publication career sites are great resources to stay in the loop on new opportunities opening up.  Be okay with the fact that you might not get your dream job right away.  It took me a year and a half before getting back to where I work now!
  36. 36. + After the Internship, continued  Build and add onto your skill set.  Take in as much new information/responsibilities as you can because it will help you become a stronger candidate for future jobs.  Absorb yourself in the industry and be aware of who is going where.  People are always moving around in the industry. Keep tabs on people you know and see where they go! Keeping a connection with them will keep you in their mind if positions ever open up where they work.
  37. 37. + Most Importantly  Your impression matters more than your words.  I left Time Inc. almost a year and a half ago, and the Photo Director reached out to me to see if I wanted to apply for the position I have now. She said the reason she thought of me for the position was because of the impression I left on her and the photo department.  Whether it is an internship, freelance job, full time job, etc. it’s up to you to decide what kind of experience you want to have and what kind of impression you want to leave with the publication.
  38. 38. + Hiring managers have heard about promises and passions before.  If you build up a positive reputation, be it in class, at an internship, or in a first job, the dream job will come to you.  The key: you want to meet people before the job is free. They’ll think of you when someone says “I need a photo editor, know anyone?”
