Charles Apple on making job applications more visual

In this week’s career chat, we talked with Charles Apple, a freelance visual journalist and instructor whose blog appears on the American Copy Editors Society’s site. Formerly, Apple was graphics director of the Virginian-Pilot and the Des Moines Register.

Apple talked about how journalists — of every kind — can use visuals to spruce up their applications and resumes online and on paper. We talked about hard-copy, digital portfolios and skill sets, and included some examples of mistakes to avoid.

    I just paid $22.87 for an iPad 2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, http://to.ly/aRG4
