There is the possibility of some paid shifts for suitable interns this summer. It's a potential opportunity that could suit recent graduates from our BA and MA programmes.

There are no guarantees at this stage, but KMTV's new news editor, Andy Richards, would be interested in seeing CVs and examples of video/TV work. If you're interested and available, contact Andy on:

Important: All CFJ computers will be wiped of student data during August.

Jun
29

All newsroom computers will have their yearly 'service' and upgrades beginning on the 1st August 2015.

**ALL STUDENT DATA WILL BE WIPED AND CANNOT SUBSEQUENTLY BE RETRIEVED.**

As all students should already have their data stored on their own backup media (hard drive, cloud etc) this should present no problems and is an essential part of keeping the CFJ's Imacs running smoothly.

PLEASE ENSURE YOU HAVE ALL OF YOUR WORK BACKED UP ON YOUR OWN DEVICES/STORAGE WELL BEFORE 1st AUGUST.

Job going on the Isle of Wight

Jun
16

Sorry for my tardiness in posting this.

A job is going for a trainee reporter at the Isle of Wight County Press. Nice little place to work. It is going through some upheaval at the moment, so what you will be working on will be different to how I started out, but it is a nice company to work for and independently owned.

If you want any extra info, give me a shout on mpmckew212@hotmail.co.uk.
