marketing yourself to agencies
Well, it's the last week of teaching term (at Portsmouth at least), and the end of the course is looming ever larger on the horizon for translation MA students all over (bar a few tiddly things like dissertations, of which we shall not speak). So a timely post from Corinne McKay on marketing yourself to agencies, with some useful comments from other professionals. Don't just throw yourself into indiscriminate CV-bombing - think about who you want to work for and what your USPs (Unique Selling Points) are and have a structured approach to marketing yourself from the start. Good recruitment tips for freelancers too at the Essential Project Management blog.
