People are often apprehensive about pursuing media opportunities, as they are painted as insecure and competitive. But, it is absolutely worth pursuing graduate media jobs or graduate journalism opportunities if you’re truly passionate about the industry. If you’re unsure, the question begins with your enthusiasm and dedication.
Careers in media industries are exciting, dynamic, and fast-paced, but they also require a lot of work. And, consequentially, they require an individual who has the energy and dedication to apply themselves. Before committing to the media path, it’s definitely worth considering whether you have the enthusiasm to prepare you for the nature of the work. So, only apply for media roles and digital media graduate jobs if you truly believe it’s something you’re passionate about.
Don’t forget that graduate media jobs or jobs in a media agency can themselves be broken down into different roles, so don’t limit yourself to just one department. Other roles include jobs in media sales, jobs in media planning, jobs in media management, jobs in media advertising, as well as countless other sectors.
It’s best to apply via Give a Grad a Go rather than other graduate media recruitment agencies, as our options are less limited. If, along the application process, you discover that you’d rather pursue something slightly – or entirely – different, you’re in the best position to do it. We will never tie you down to any industry or sector. Our recruiters will get to know you, your CV, and your experience, and we can recommend you for any role we think you seem a good match for!
