We created an online portfolio full of the stuff we created over the past year, and beyond. Mine includes links to my personal blog, and some of the video and audio packages from last year.
It isn’t completely finished, because there are some more things I would like to add – the videos me and Clara made for the uni for election season, and the video I edited for the chaplaincy last summer – but there’s a wide selection of skills shown on the portfolio, which I think is better than tailoring it specifically to what I want to do after uni.
I then spoke to Mike about what kind of placement I was interested in; I still have no idea.
My strongest skill is writing, and it’s what I enjoy doing most, so I’d like to go into written journalism, though, right now, I’m not fussy about whether online or in print – the print industry is dying so I would probably write for online magazines or news sites. Though i said I don’t want to do news and I stand by that – I think I’ve done too much creative writing to be a good news writer.
