We're about to launch our app and are thinking to reach out to journalists with some fun perks related to our business. What's your advice?
Be careful about how you approach reporters, as most news organizations have policies that prevent journalists from being able to accept gifts. Some are stricter than others, and your efforts may backfire. You don’t want the headlines to be about journalists indulging in elaborate perks. It will look like you are trying to buy their kind words, and it could cost them their job. Think creatively and decide what you want. Do you want to give a reporter a story worth writing, or something savory to tweet about, or do you just want to familiarize them with your brand? Below are a few ideas that you can build on: Create an Experience: Set up a pop-up open house where you can curate your best perks in an interactive environment. Invite media along with your community of clients and users. Use the event to make news, launch a new product or make an critical announcement. Host an Open House: If you are working with a smaller budget, host an off the record media open house at your office. Make sure your key people are there along with some of your investors. It is a good way for reporters to get to know the people driving the company’s story in a casual setting and explore different story angles. Make a Social Impact & Partner with a Charity: Reach out to a local or national charity and see if they would like to offer the people they serve a perk. For them it is a way to diversify the services they share with their clients and you can make it a media opportunity. Target the Socialerati: There is a certain content fatigue around those obligatory, “Look at the great swag I was just sent, because I am so fabulous!” Those moments shared on social media are more influential when the sentiments are genuine. Maybe build a game around the perks and invite your network, bloggers, famous-on-instagramers, tumblrs and more to play. Everyone loves to win. “Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner!” If your influencers are influential enough, the campaign might catch the eyes of an enterprising reporter.

I'm so thankful I came across this article. I'll be moving to another state in the upcoming months and wasn't quite sure when or how to start a job search. I don't have a set date for when I'll be moving, I just know the location and am hoping it is soon. If I could land a job before I move, it would definitely help. Thank you for sharing this!

Besides Javascript, what do you see as the next solid language and/or framework to know & be awesome at? :)
What a great question, Kimberly, and an insightful one. LevoLeague.com is built on Ruby on Rails, and if you're building a web app that doesn't need any heavy processing I would say that's the way to go. My experience with Ruby has been that's it's super intuitive and simple to pick up. If I had unlimited time and could learn any language I wanted I would go with a functional language like Lisp or Scala. Those seem like challenges, and the concept of immutable data is awesome. C# is also a really valuable language to learn. Microsoft has packed both functional and dynamic properties into a static language, which makes it really powerful.

What advice would you give someone interested in establishing a career as a "niche" journalist? I am interested in med journalism.
Hi Sonal, Great question! First of all, I think niche journalism is definitely the route to take as editors are typically looking for beat reporters who have a specific expertise. Like building any other skill, to become an expert read/view any and all content of med journalism that you like and admire. Especially tap those outlets where you aspire to work. As I built my career as a financial and business journalist, other opportunities came my way that was outside the business arena. I passed up on those opportunities and kept my focus. So the same should go for you--become an expert, stay focused and keep at it--one story at a time.

I have found life experience to be the best way to improve my own leadership. What suggestions do you have for improving leadership skills?
Outside of formal programs and initiatives(check out Lean In Education), I've improved my leadership skills the most by soliciting and responding to feedback. During and after any project or initiative you're involved with, ask the people you're working with how you're doing. Openly let people know that you'd like to know what you did that worked and what you could change for the next time. Listen carefully, smile, and express gratitude for the feedback. If you disagree with the feedback, resist the urge to get defensive. You can always circle back around later to let the person know your response. It's more important to build trust so that people will tell you what you need to hear and not just what you want to hear. Once you develop this habit of soliciting feedback you'll be able to recognize the patterns that will allow you to increase your leadership self awareness.

It's all about 1) lifestyle and 2) the amount of loans you have. I've met millenials with 70K+ salary jobs who hardly have any savings, and its because they spend $700/mo on going out to eat. I've also met Millenials who only make $30K a year who scrimped, saved, had no student loans, and bought their first place by 26.

How can I make an informational interview at a non-profit organization I'd love to work at as productive as possible?
Levo just published a great piece on this topic: http://www.levoleague.com/articles/career-advice/interview-prep-things-you-must-do. It's about job interviews but most of the tips apply to an informational interview as well. The one thing I'd add about informational interviews is to be very clear about your ask - how you want the person to help you. And if they give you any additional leads be sure to loop back and update them on the progress for each one of them. Good luck. PS: Fill out your profile and add pic so I can learn more about you ;)

Hi Emily! Do you have any thoughts around pushing content as a new blogger? I'm writing about an industry different from my current job.
Hi Misha, Unfortunately content strategy / PR aren't really my areas of expertise, so I am not quite sure I understand your question, or am equipped to answer it. Are you asking about driving traffic to your blog, or connecting with brands to provide content? I might be able to provide a better answer around the latter. Best, Emily

Good reading! I think be good full-time worker and freelancing at the same time is a hard thing. You have to combine everyday life. There will be a day when you have to realize what more important: freelance or full-time job. I made my choice for freelance and don't regret.
