Another student bags a job….

10 01 2013

Happy New Year! Here at Brighton Journalist Works Towers we are looking forward to seeing 16 bright, shiny new faces on Monday when our first Fast Track NCTJ course of 2013 kicks off. We love seeing them trooping in all shy on the first day and then, 14 weeks later, leaving here armed with their portfolios, qualifications and a steely determination to bag that first job.

Talking of which, over Christmas we had a lovely triumphant email from a 2012 student John Herring whose blog on the trials and tribulations of training to be a journo kept us amused in the office.

His email said:

“Hi all.  Another success story for Brighton Journalist Works. I had an interview at the Newbury Weekly News at 10:00 on Friday morning. At 15:00 they phoned me back and offered me a job as a trainee reporter wanting me to start asap.

I start next Monday (Jan 14th).

 I’d like to thank you and all the staff at BJW for providing the excellent training, advice and work experience that is crucial for anyone wanting to get into the industry. Regards and thanks, John Herring.  ”

Yah, well done John – delighted to have helped you on your way!
