Another Successful Working in Publishing Day
Students on the MA programmes in Publishing Media and Digital Publishing and third year undergraduate students in Publishing participated in our annual all day event that helps them make direct, individual and personal links with people already working in the publishing industry.
This involves many companies visiting our campus to meet up with students in a 'speed dating' event which follows sessions on identifying your unique selling points, tailoring your cv to job specifications to hone your application -- all skills that are relevant to getting a job in publishing anywhere in the world.
Students make personal links with people in the visiting companies which include agents, designers, trade and academic publishers, journals publishers, and recruitment agencies.
The 2016 event took place in the 'Terrace' space at Oxford Brookes University and was well attended by over 50 companies. Please expore the photos from the event.
Towards the end of the day, the students heard an inspirational talk from Jamie Byng, MD of Canongate Books.
