During the journalism course and since its completion I have been actively pursuing freelance work in the music industry … I have written over 100 album reviews, I have reviewed an incredible array of live concerts and I have had the chance to interview some of my musical heroes.
About six months after completing the course I started working at Reader’s Digest, where I garnered a lot of experience across a mix of advertising, copywriting and journalism-based assignments. Without having done the course, I wouldn’t have even got a look-in for the position…
Following a trip to Europe, I decided I wanted to turn my hobby of writing into something greater so that I could contribute pieces to magazines and newspapers. Already working a full-time job, I only wanted to pursue freelance journalism on a part-time basis. University didn’t feel like the right path for me or my goals, so I started researching the alternatives.
I have successfully been published twice in The Moroccan Times newspaper during the course of my studies. My goal is to continue to write and publish travel and life style articles. I would highly recommend the course to any budding journalist.
