SKILL UP THIS AUTUMN

So we have decided to lay on 10 media and communication courses in the autumn, which are open to everyone, affordably priced and taught by experienced practitioners.

Trainer Profile: Steffen Thejll-Moller

A dual Danish and Italian citizen, Steffen Thejll-Moller is a graduate of Oxford University. He has for the past decade advised organisations and individuals in London, Brussels and beyond on how best to use digital and social media in corporate, internal, and political communications, public affairs and campaigning.

At agencies large and small, he has worked across an array of industries, including pharma, tech, food, transport and energy, and has advised and trained international organisations, politicians and government officials.

Steffen appreciates that the internet is a game-changer, but he remembers the analogue age, is allergic to shiny new toy syndrome, and loathes being termed a guru (or ninja). He advocates a sensible use of digital and social media to help communicators understand, reach, and influence target audiences, built on solid (non-digital) foundations, like genuine audience understanding, and integrated and measurable communications strategies.

Steffen’s musings on digital, communications, and public affairs may be found at www.steffenmoller.com

How to write a killer CV – 15 dos and don’ts

Reading CVs and cover letters is like smoking cigarettes – one or two won’t harm you but constant exposure will.

Unfortunately, in my line of work – managing a small communication company and finding internships for American students in Brussels – I am exposed to more CVs than most would consider healthy.

This is not a dig at the quality of the candidates, who are often more skilled, more educated and more motivated than I am with their double masters, four to five languages and experience working in nine countries. It stems more from an honest desire to help talented people get the jobs they want without making basic mistakes. So here are 15 tips for writing a better CV, with apologies to all those anonymously quoted:

What?

Clear Europe is a Brussels-based communication agency that specialises in media and journalism training, copywriting and strategic communication advice.
