Video: Landing Your First Content Design Job – panel discussion


The fine folks at the School of Visual Concepts, for whom I occasionally lead a course on Content Strategy Fundamentals, have made the video available from a recent panel discussion I participated in, moderated by Elly Searle, about getting your first job in content design.

I’m of the opinion that the job you have now is probably your “first” content design job, as content design is something you can begin practicing in just about any role as a knowledge worker. But of course, your salary might not reflect that! Lots of great tips here from folks at various stages of their careers, from folks who’ve recently broken in to the perspective of hiring managers.
