    Hey everyone,

    I'm really keen on getting into Conde Nast or Hachette Filipacchi UK.
    I'm quite keen on magazine journalism in general.
    I don't have any 'contacts' as such, but I do have a background in journalism, albeit from abroad and I want to do a few distance courses run by the NCTJ. I have a B.A. in English, and I'm going to do my masters in Creative Enterprises.

    I would like to know what is required to get into these companies. I also would like to hear about the experiences of those who have gotten a break with these publishers or in the industry itself.

    Any tips of how to get in, and what you need to do so would be welcome.

    Thanks
