Tweets are posted every weekday with jobs available in TV, Radio, print and online as well as PR and Comms. It's a great way of keeping a close eye on what's available in one place. If you see a job here you are interested in, drop me a line for affordable advice and guidance.
Simple guidance and advice on how to structure and layout your CV. This goes through key things to include and information to leave out, as well as advice on how to maximise your experience.
Cover letter Development
The most essential part of a job application is the cover letter and it is the part people often find the hardest. Here you will received guidance on what to write and how to structure your letters and applications.
Getting advice from someone who is neutral (not a partner, family member, colleague) is essential to be able to get a clear view of what is right thing to do. The sessions will provide insight and guidance on how to progress your career.
