Cosmopolitan’s Careers Masterclass

Cosmopolitan's Careers Masterclass

I came across two articles discussing Cosmopolitan’s Careers Masterclass and thought I would share and provide some feedback.

Cosmopolitan magazine (UK) held their first ever Cosmo Careers Masterclass a few weeks ago to discuss the world of media – speaking about topics such as how to get into and stay in the industry.

Banjo PR wrote an article about the masterclass and posted their top 10 tips. I believe these tips are helpful and useful and I personally need to live by tip #6: be bold. I recently posted about my cover letter dilemma and reading this reassured me that I should definitely be bold and tell whoever is reading my resume and cover letter how much I love the organization they work for.

Cosmopolitan also posted about their masterclass, highlighting some of the topics discussed and comments. It was mentioned that you should have a Twitter account and “if you don’t have a Twitter account, I’d wonder why you wanted to work in this industry.” I disagree with that statement. I have a Twitter account, even though I don’t use it but I don’t think you need to have one. I don’t use mine but if I had to I would know what to do, it’s not difficult. I’m a pretty private person and would rather not put myself out there like that which is why I don’t use Twitter. And even though I don’t use it, it doesn’t mean I don’t go on Twitter to see what people within the industry are saying.

I would have loved to attend the Careers Masterclass. I recently saw event listings of other PR events, mostly held in the U.S. and I really wish Canada had events like these. The one we did have here in Toronto, I happened to miss. Hopefully I’ll finally be able to attend one of these industry events. In the mean time, I’ll just continue to read about them.
