HR Pro Sharon Jautz on The New Rules of Interviewing for a Job

JENNIFER PULLINGER

sj_mjd.jpg Sharon Jautz, director of human resources at Asset International, has more than a quarter century of HR experience in the media industry, but those media jobs have changed since she first started out — and so has the job interview game. Ahead of her talk on career management at Mediabistro Career Circus August 4, she tells writer Jennifer Pullinger what the new rules are for interviewing for a media job in today’s hiring environment.

“Market yourself in terms of your accomplishments rather than making your resume look like you’re a newspaper guy or a video guy. You need to market yourself in this economy as a media guy. [For example,] ‘I know Final Cut Pro. I know this content management system. I know breaking news. I know how to write feature stories, I know how to edit. I’ve managed freelancers…’ I’m looking for skill sets as opposed to background and experience.”

Sharon Jautz shares tips on managing your media career in her upcoming panel discussion at Mediabistro Career Circus on August 4 in New York.
