CUNY Graduate School of Journalism Professor Jeff Jarvis led a group of media thought leaders in brainstorming the most in-demand skills for audience engagement, at the university last week.

During the brainstorming session, participants identified the skills below, many of which were analytical, as being most necessary for recent journalism graduates to succeed with audience engagement in the newsroom:

  • Resilience
  • Ability to show progress towards a goal
  • Need to know how to create a process for something to tell if an experiment worked

Jarvis is director of the Tow Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at CUNY’s Graduate School of Journalism. He’s a prominent leader in the field of journalism and author of the book, “Geeks Bearing Gifts,” a CUNY J-Press book about the future of the news media.
