Graduate Journalist CareerWatch this thread
Hope you had a lovely Christmas and New Year.
I was wondering if anyone would be able to give any ideas on where to go once graduated from university? I have two degrees in Journalism and Media, respectively. Unfortunately, however, I have had no such luck getting any jobs.
I have applied to numerous jobs across Scotland as I do drive so I am happy to commute. I have applied for all levels, especially entry level jobs, but no matter what, I keep getting declined.
I have been lucky to get a few interviews, but they always end back with either a decline, or more often than not, not even a response.
As you can imagine, it is quite disheartening not getting into the field that you have worked so hard to get into. I have been doing some freelance stuff here and there, but a stable, full-time job is what is what I am truly after.
I have tried applying for apprenticeships, social media style jobs, (trainee) reporter jobs, and the occasional magazine job.
I know the career field is relatively hard to get into and there is always a high level of competition.
I was just wondering if you guys had any ideas, or suggestions on what I could try?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you and looking forward to your answers.
