Northern Media marketing executive, Anthony Bowyer, and our new account manager, Alina McAuley, were invited to Huddersfield University this month to hold a guest lecture with third year journalism students on life after graduation and how the skills they have gained from their journalism degree can be applied to digital marketing.
The pair, who are both former Huddersfield University graduates, were invited to the campus by journalism and media senior lecturer, Deidre O’Neill, to speak students about career opportunities after graduating from university. They also spoke about the pressures that come with the final six months of university, how to cope with their personal development portfolios and how they found their time at Huddersfield University both educationally and personally.
Anthony Bowyer, said:
“It is great to be able to go back to Huddersfield University as it is a place I hold in the highest of regards from my time there. University can seem like a very different place from the real world and the task of getting a job can be daunting to even the best of students. However, I am hoping that our lecture showcased the pathways from University life into the working environment and I hope we give them all confidence for their final few months. It was an honour to be asked to go back to the University once again and I look forward to doing it again sometime soon.”
Anthony previously held a similar talk earlier on in the year with the 2015 final year students who graduated in July. Ironically, both Alina and Northern Media marketing executive, Shaun Bradley, were also sat in that same guest lecture.
Chris Elliott, managing director at Northern Media, added:
“Recruiting young, passionate and talented local individuals is key to the success of Northern Media and is something that has worked exceptionally well so far. We now have three graduates all from the journalism course at Huddersfield University, proving that it can open fantastic opportunities to students involved. We presented at the University last year so it’s great to be invited back. Hopefully our relationship with the University can continue, and I look forward to seeing what new talent they produce in the future.”
