Skills I use and how I developed them
If I listed all the skills you end up using as a journalist we'd be here a long time - the nature of the job means you tend to need different ones every day. However good communication skills are pretty essential, especially if you want to be a reporter or producer.
What I like most

My career history

My advice to students considering work
It's tough to get work these days and competition is fierce. Don't leave planning your future until graduation day.
