You may remember a while back that I was unsure whether to do Journalism and PR at university, or a just Journalism degree, thankfully, today definitely helped me to answer this question.
My school held a careers fair today. Two organisations sounded interesting and were at the fair, and I spoke to them.
One was the local radio station. This interested me because I host my own radio show at school, love music, and wouldn’t mind going into radio hosting/radio journalism.
They recommended an apprenticeship scheme, which sounded very interesting!
Lastly, the second was a local PR agency. I asked the representative about Journalism and PR. In particular, whether just a Journalism degree get you into PR, and it does!
Therefore, I left the careers fair with a lot of useful tips and info, and with the idea that I want to do an NCTJ approved course at university! Woohoo!
