Learn the persuasive strategies that work well in this genre, and techniques to tailor your resume format for different kinds of publishers.This workshop will include two case studies: “Kim,” who is just starting out, and “Emma,” who is pursuing a career transition.

 

  • Showcasing Your Skills and Accomplishments in an Online Portfolio
    Webinar, Editors CanadaBy showcasing curated examples of our work, online portfolios provide the evidence to support the claims we make about our editing skillset. Portfolios thus make visible the often invisible work that editors perform. When an editor builds their own portfolio, they can discover connections between their diverse accomplishments and construct a compelling story about who they are and what they offer.

    This webinar series will draw on examples of editors’ online portfolios to help you determine what kind of portfolio you want to build, what content you might include in your portfolio, and whether and how to integrate a portfolio with your existing website.
