Jobs roundup

Jun

The Centre for Journalism has a reputation for producing graduates who get excellent jobs, but the real credit is due to our students who work so hard to convert their education into professional opportunity. This year there are several who have reason to celebrate before they have received their final results. So big cheers for: Jay Akbar, who is working shifts at Sky News; Matt McKew, Trainee Reporter on the Isle of Wight County Press; Scott Mitchell, journalist with Autocar Magazine; Harley Tamplin, Trainee Reporter on the West Sussex County Times; Tiia Mustonen, now Nordic Correspondent Research Europe; Tania Steere who has secured one of the most prized traineeships in British journalism as a Trainee Reporter on the Daily Mail, and Tara Nichelle who has won a place as a Communications Intern at the United Nations in Geneva. Well done all. If anyone else has good news to share we would love to hear about it.
