You have two assignments relating to personal branding:
- Create your own journalism portfolio site on a professional-looking template such as WordPress or Weebly. Your site needs to have a polished feel and must list your resume, contact information (e-mail only is fine), an “about me” section, and links to at least five examples of your multi-platform work. A professional-looking picture is optional. You’ll also want to replace the standard “Hello World” post with a “Welcome” post explaining that this is your journalism portfolio site. (At first, you’ll probably want to explain that it’s under construction and to come back soon.) For links to some basic HTML pointers, visit my Delicious page.Here are some example sites from previous students:
- Create a LinkedIn profile (at least 75% complete) and add me as a connection.
Your portfolio site (worth 75 points) is due at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 5. Simply send me the link when you’re finished and the site is ready to go. Your LinkedIn page (worth 25 points) is due at 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 6.
