In my search for a job in the communications/social media field, I have realized the importance of being active on all types of social media. Many of the job postings I’ve seen are looking for candidates with knowledge in WordPress and examples of candidates’ writing portfolios. What better way for me to gain experience in writing for an audience outside of my family, friends and the few followers I have on social media than to start a blog on WordPress. Sure, I have Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and LinkedIn accounts, but I need an outlet for me to illustrate my writing skills to prospective employers. Enjoy!
