Lauren lands Express job

We couldn't help but notice a familiar byline on the Express website's coverage of Kanye West's meltdown this morning. That's Lauren Meechan, who graduated from the CfJ's BA programme this summer, and has landed a great job as online showbiz reporter for the Express - having applied through LinkedIn.

Congratulations Lauren.

Year 3's New Perspectives web site is live again today

Year 3 students from the BA Journalism course are once again working on an assessed newsday. This afternoon they will be broadcasting 2 hours of live radio from the centre's newsroom. And throughout the day they will be updating their New Perspectives web site and its associated social media accounts. 

Today: 10-minute talk that could change your future

Today at 1pm we're welcoming former regional newspaper editor Rebecca Smith to the CfJ newsroom. Rebecca now works for Kent Business School here at the university, and will be introducing the ASPIRE project, which aims to encourage student entrepreneurs to develop their ideas for commercial and social enterprise ventures - and, crucially, to help provide them with funding.

She'll be giving a short, 10-minute presentation to introduce the scheme at 1pm in the main undergraduate newsroom. All undergraduate and postgraduate students are encouraged to attend.
