Are you a student looking for a career in the media or journalism?
The University of Central Lancashire have organised a packed one day event that will hopefully bring you together with employers and distinguished UCLan graduate alumni.
Meet an Oscar nominee, or the Head of BBC North West, reporters for the Sun or for ITV. All talent produced by the UCLan over the years.
The cJAM Careers In Journalism and Media event in early April hosts a glittering array of previous UCLan graduates who have gone on to big things in the outside world and want to share their experience with you.
A great opportunity to share notes, boost your CV, gain placements by meeting and greeting guests working in media today. Plus there will be a free buffet lunch!
Alumni covering film production, script-writing, web-site design, media technology, TV, radio, newspapers, magazines and public relations will be there. A full list of attendees will be available nearer the time of the event.
