Quick chat with High Point University’s Carol Davis

Carol Davis, a communications instructor at High Point University in North Carolina, was one of the first video bloggers reporting from the floor of the Chicago Stock Exchange. She also covered the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, NASDAQ, the NYSE and the American Stock Exchange.

During the Business Journalism Professor Seminars on Jan. 2-5, Davis chatted with us about opportunities in the blogosphere. She shared tips on how to create a “Portfolio of You” to continue moving forward in the marketplace.

Some of her insights included:

  • To be credible, go through a well-established program so that you understand how to source, attribute, and report.
  • You are your own brand. Market yourself accordingly.
  • Be well rounded. Know how to do everything.
  • Always be ready to redefine and improve your skills.
