JOURNALISM graduate Toni Brient says the Monash program has equipped her with the skills to work in today’s tough news media landscape.
Toni has been successful in obtaining a cadetship at the award-winning regional newspaper,Shepparton News.
“The course gave me a great understanding of both the theoretical and practical components of contemporary journalism,” Toni said.
“The flexible course structure and breadth of subjects allowed me to tailor my learning while still gaining experience in a variety of subject areas.
Toni said the journalism lab work challenges had helped to develop a range of functional skills.
“From simulated exercises in the journalism labs to supported industry placements at places like The Age, I am confident my three years at Monash have equipped me to compete in today’s tough news media landscape,” she said.
“This is illustrated by the fact that in my final year I got my first job as a journalist at Shepparton News.”
