Hi everyone, please help to review this networking chevening essay please. Thanks in advance!
networking - a bridge between idea and action
I use networking capabilities to bridge each idea into actions and solutions to improve work efficiency.
I did this in my job as an assistant editor in online media. As a technology journalist, I often exposed to the latest technological developments. Most of the time this knowledge has helped me to create solutions to streamline workflow in the office.
One of the example is the idea to creating tools that can be used to provide recommendations about the topic of the article. This idea occurred after I conducted an interview with an NLP (Natural Languange Processing) expert, He made tools to measure social media sentiment.
From this interview I know the basic idea of that tools can be used for my office benefit. Then I discuss the idea with the IT team. Currently, the IT team is in the process of developing that idea.
I did the same thing when I had the idea to create a daily traffic report dashboard. The IT team then realized my idea of creating a dashboard traffic that can be used by all channels in our office.
In my opinion, the knowledge I gained during news coverage, interviews, and writing technology news greatly helped to convey the development idea to the IT team.
Its also bridging the solution between editorial problem with the IT team resources and talent. They have the talent but did not really know what difficulties we as the editorial team faced. While the editorial team often stuck with daily routines that can actually be made effective with technology -- that we cannot made it.
There are still many ideas and things I got to make office work more effective with the help of technology in the future. This office has not optimized the use of the potential big data it has or uses AI in processing news for instance. Even though these are two technological are becoming trends nowadays and will flourish in the future.
My networking skill has succeeded in bridging the parties who have ideas and have the ability to manifest solutions that are useful for the larger community. Moreover, I believe an extensive Chevening connection can help to bridge more innovative ideas for the world of journalism and provide better information to the world community.
