We wanted to share some job searching tips from Connie Malamed, blogger at the eLearning Coach, and a close friend of ISD Now.
She recently shared her podcast on “Finding a Job in Instructional Technology,” with us. In the podcast, Connie interviews Joe Fournier, Director of Instructional Design and Technology, who has hired several individuals within the field.
Joe shares 3 helpful key job searching tips for finding a job in instructional technology:
- A Thirst for Learning: A good instructional designer often possesses a thirst for learning
- Portfolio Power: Joe encourages instructional designers provide portfolios (particularly in an online format).
- Bye-Bye Boilerplate: Hiring managers are looking to hire instructional designers who fit with the team and close any existing gaps. Outstanding interviewees can have a conversation with you, not regurgitate boilerplate talking points about themselves.
