Want to get a job? Become an expert (at something)

In a time where finding a journalism job, or any communications related field, for that matter, appears to be getting harder and harder by the day, there's one way you can get an edge over the competition.

What's that, you ask? Become an expert in the field of your choice.

For instance, if you're interested in local and state politics, start a blog covering that subject.  If it's banking, business, and/or finance, start a blog on that. The same thing goes for fashion, pharmaceuticals, social media, sociology, etc.

The more experience (or knowledge) you have covering a particular subject, or in journalism terms, covering a beat, the better off you're going to be when it comes time to apply for a job.
