Graduates return to give job advice to students

Grad talk 15

Twenty journalism and media graduates returned to Sheffield Hallam University yesterday to share their top tips on getting a job to current students.

The 2015 SHU Grad Talk was a great success with standing room only in the Peak Lecture theatre.

Top tips included: being persistent, using LinkedIn, cultivating contacts, standing out and gaining lots of work experience.

Each graduate spent three minutes giving out their tips before students were able to network with them face-to-face at a drinks reception.

The annual event, organised by journalism lecturer, and department employability lead, Philo Holland, was captured in live tweets.
