To get a job today you need a degree of some sort, let's be frank. To get a degree you need to go to university. To get into university you need to have good A levels, GCSE's, and work experience in the area you're hoping to get into. The grades are up to you, you are going to get out what you put in. However the work experience? Much harder than it sounds!
I want to do a media journalism course, however the university I want to do it at asks that you have some sort of experience in the media world. This is understandable, I guess it rules out those people who are really interested in the world of media, and those who aren't sure which course to do and are hoping for an easy one.
Having said this, I have contacted many media organisations (by e-mail and telephone) and they just aren't interested unless you are already a university student working towards a degree. How are you supposed to get the experience FOR the course if the companies only want students already ON a university course?
