Journalism – Where will your skills take you?

Journalism – What Interests You?
Career skills are very broad with career paths being constantly specialised and shrunken. Students were asked what skills they had developed during their course at UOW and where they saw these skills taking them in job opportunities & life in general. As explored by interviewee’s, the most common skills are those taught at the most elementary level – such as interviewing and researching, however the more intricate skills of photography and filming were not so prevalent in first year students. This will help to explore the skills deemed necessary by these students and explain why they were seen as such.

Studying Together, Working Apart

Studying Together, Working Apart:

Students at UOW studying Journalism will remain a cohort for a few years yet, however it is then that the diversity of this field will swallow up young prospects and take them where it chooses. Young reporters must have a defined path they seek to travel in order to have the passion and drive required to succeed in such a competitive field. These students have shown a thirst for fulfilling their dreams as journalists and are seeking to make the most of their studies at UOW to further enhance and develop their reporting & coverage skills.

Differences in Similarities

Tailored similarities, specific solutions.

Tailored similarities, specific solutions.

University is a very personal experience. All onus is placed on the student. Attendance requirements are much more lax. Everyone is there to acquire their degree, but the means by which students achieve this are vastly different.

Similar to the individual specifications on a Subway “sub”, university life offers diverse opportunities to engage with the culture and people with whom the campus is shared – such as UniBar parties and social gatherings. These forge relationships between peers from different faculties and courses, and allows students to tailor their workload & socialising to their individual taste.

Same same but different.

A line in the bricks.

Lines appear everywhere. Outside coffee shops, UniBar, and undercover areas on rainy days. Lines force people to decide what matters most – acquiring the morning coffee, or if saving time means getting wet.

Lines are part of life – the coffee lines showing the stereotypical “uni lifestyle” – however they are crucial for identifying people and differentiating ourselves. University can be an individual or communal experience. Engaging with others will more likely abide by social “norms” and take conservative approaches – avoiding the rain on this particular day – however individuals are given to efficiency, timeliness and obscure solutions.
