The benefits of writing for your student publication are endless and can easily help you secure experience and work after your graduation.
This week, our Fashion and Beauty editor for 2019/2020, Eve Watson, revealed that after graduation she’ll be working as a new trainee reporter for Plymouth Live.
This is a huge step in her career, so we spoke to her to see how she’s feeling about it.
“I’m really excited to be starting in Plymouth, but I definitely wouldn’t have had the confidence had I not had experience with Platform and my local newspapers”, she told us.
Platform has been such a great opportunity for me and has really helped give me an edge in interviews.”
“It’s definitely a sign to employers that you’re dedicated and interested in journalism even if you don’t do it as a course already.”
