Info/ Journalism Tips!

Hallo everyone. Since last we spoke I attended this fantastic journalism course with T!Media. Being so inspired by the course I felt inclined to create a fresh start in the blogosphere. No - this is not the end of The Fashion Edition, but it is the beginning of my new blog, Gun & a Pack of Sandwiches!

The difference between the two? Well here I mainly post fashion-related things, but on my new squeeze I'll be posting any and everything under the sun; being free of the word 'Fashion' in my blog name is rather liberating when it comes to writing, I must say!

I thought I'd share some of my tips picked up on the journalism course as I know that many of my fellow bloggers - and indeed you readers - are interested in pursuing a career in writing or journalism.

Quick Tips:
Get WORK EXPERIENCE. Experience shows that you truly are interested in becoming a journalist and are proactive in pursuing this desire. Having experience in journalism before application to a job will separate you from other applicants. TIP: Start off targeting small local publications as you have a greater chance of being accepted. This also goes for getting a job. Start small: smaller companies are likely to have more tasks to issue you, whereas bigger corporations will probably leave you to do the filing and make cups of tea.  You DON'T NEED A DEGREE. All of the journalists who've presented to us so far have declared that most journalists don't have a degree - it's experience that is important. If you do want to do a degree media studies is not recommended. A solid English degree, or other essay writing subject will suffice - that's if you're convinced university is the place for you. 

...For the rest of the tips, read on here. And, if that's not enough, there are 10 more great tips from ex-special correspondent journalist and author, Edna Fernandes!

  2. I am 100% at your back for this road safety forum you are having. It's a great way of instilling to the people the value of safety when on the road and thus, preventing any accidents from happening. In our country, the rate of minor road accidents seems to rise so this forum would be helpful especially if attended by people mainly using the road for transportation.look at my profile
