Our 2012 journalism graduates aren’t wasting any time. They are banging on doors, getting work experience, applying for jobs, and getting them! It’s hard to keep up, but I’ll do my best.
Kim Law, has landed a post as a reporter on the Selby Post. Kim wrote to her former lecturers after she got the news.
I would just like to say thankyou for all the help, guidance and support you have given me over the past three years and throughout my journalism degree.
I found out today that I have got a full time job as a reporter at the Selby Post newspaper. The job is local and perfect for me and I could not be happier! They are going to put me through the NCTJ course and pay for it too which is fantastic! I start two weeks tomorrow and can not believe my luck!
