Are You Camera Ready?

July 22, 2009

I recently had the opportunity to provide interview coaching to graduates and alumni at a career event for aspiring and working journalists.

There was one person that stood out from the crowd and when our time together ended, I was struck by how “camera ready” she was. She presented herself from top to bottom in a most professional way, leaving no doubt in my mind that she could easily step in front of a camera and deliver the news.

She was dressed for the job she aspired to and when she will be in the right place at the right time, she will get the job. 

What are your job aspirations?  What are you wearing?
