2 Most Significant Challenges MMJ's Face in 2021
On this New Year's Eve 2020, we see significant talent management trends spilling into 2021 and are rooted in our ongoing requirements to work in a virtual world. The two most pressing for multimedia journalists are:
On site and in-person interviews are going to be held to a minimum. Gaining visibility to talent and job openings will continue to be a challenge. This is especially true for college graduates. ZOOM interviewing skills will be critical to moving up in the first half of 2021.
Just as our children have been relegated to remote learning, young journalists are facing the same skill development challenges. The difference however is that for MMJ's there are few options outside of station/company sponsored programs or personal mentors.
Since established in 2016, the team at TalentBlvd has been focused on both of these opportunities. In June 2020 we started our online Showcase program and we are thrilled to be launching a new to the world platform in Jan 2021. In Feb, we will also be premiering a new collegiate recruiting tool.
