How to get hired at the WSJ

John Crowley, Digital Editor, WSJ.com Europe:

I want to see a demonstrable enthusiasm for journalism and knowledge of the latest innovation in the industry. What are you passions? We all have them – and we are all publishers now. What are you blogging about? I’d certainly take an interest in what you’re saying on Twitter, Instagram and other public social platforms.

A young journalist not self-publishing is like a musician who only picks up her instruments when she has a recording contract.
