Brighton Journalist Works have trained hundreds of journalists to gain their NCTJ qualifications and become working journalists.
Their success stories, (click here to view) speak volumes for our tutors and our industry experience.
Training here is unique, as it's in the offices of Brighton's daily newspaper - The Argus.
Newsquest Media (Publishers of The Argus) take a keen interest in the development of talented journalists and so hosting training is a perfect solution.
How to write a Journalist CV, ten top tips:
10Â Â Â Â DO:Â Â
â€˘Â Put your name clearly at the top.
â€˘Â Include a correct phone number (you will be surprised by the amount of people that get this wrong, or leave it off completely)
â€˘Â Insert a hyperlinked email address â€“ this makes it as easy as possible for the employer to get in touch.
â€˘Â Other things to avoid that could lead the employer to make a judgement are; Age/Date of Birth, Height/Weight and Address (if you live too far from the client, they may be put off).
Some people like to include a list of personal interests in their CV, but in my opinion you should leave these to your facebook profile. The CEO of a leading Media Business does not have the time to read about how you enjoy cycling, skiing and spending time with friends. If it is not relevant to the role, leave it out.
Another unnecessary section that people often add to their CV is a line saying â€śReferences available on requestâ€ť. Of course they are, there is no reason for this sentence. If it wasnâ€™t there, the employer wouldnâ€™t assume that you are unable to get references, so leave it out.
