Graduate media jobs and careers in journalism

  • Yes! The media industry may be a difficult one to break into, but it is not entirely inaccessible. If you’re looking for junior media jobs and you don’t have the experience to boost your application, come to us. With over a decade of experience in graduate recruitment, we’re adept at operating the modern hiring market. We’ve worked with hundreds of clients and even more graduates who are attempting to get roles without experience.

    Firstly, we’ll make sure you apply for the right roles. It’s not always easy to spot entry level media jobs, and you can find yourself let down when you get rejected for not having the appropriate experience. A big part of getting into the media industry is finding a company that’s willing to take a chance on somebody with less experience. These companies exist, but it can fee like they don’t. We have end-to-end communication with clients, so we can quickly establish what they’re looking for, and work out whether you’re right for their media roles.

    With our CV and interview experience, we can help you accentuate the qualities in your application. Experience is not everything. But, it does go without saying that having experience can make the application process a lot easier. It will also open you up to more roles and more companies. If you don’t know where to start, get in touch with us and we can help you on your path to finding media experience.

  • This is a very dependent question. Jobs in journalism can certainly provide a good salary, even if not the most stable. This tends to come with more respected senior positions, or more junior positions at established companies. Once you have worked with good clients, written for respected publications, and attained impressive bylines, you’ll see your pay increasing.

    However, careers in journalism are challenging, demanding, and do not always pay well instantaneously. Graduate journalism jobs and jobs for media graduates will pay an entry level salary, relative to your position within the industry. You may find a more appealing starting salary if you are pursuing these jobs with a journalism degree under your belt. Considering how competitive the industry is, relevant degrees provide a crucial advantage when pursuing entry level journalism jobs.

    At Give a Grad a Go, we only work with clients who offer reasonable, appropriate starting salaries. We make sure to only advertise jobs to you that offer a salary reflecting where you are in your career. Apply for junior journalism jobs through our service, and you’ll find a well-paid path into a journalism career.

  • 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.

    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!
