Do you yearn to see your name in print? Are you a budding journalist or a blogger? Perhaps you need an outlet for your overflowing creative juices? Or maybe you just have some opinions you want to get off your chest?
Now’s your chance to join our editorial team. We’re looking for talented student writers to contribute to our exciting new venture.
Real World has always been the source for tell-it-like-it-is info about where next after uni, but now we’re inviting students and recent graduates to get stuck in too. We’ve got some revealing research to share, but we all know that experts, career services and employers don’t have all the answers – as students we’ve got a better idea about the challenges we face and the solutions… especially when it comes to getting digital.
HOW TO CONTRIBUTE
Here are some article ideas. Just pick one (or more) and send your work to email@example.com. Alternatively, you can come up with your own – just make sure it’s at least vaguely on the subject of graduate careers and, for this issue, we’re especially keen on ideas on our digital theme.
We just want quick nuggets – 50 to 150 words – or more if you wish on any of the following topics…
- The best of the web: What websites do you use in your careers search? Why? What do you like about them? What do you use them for and how? Are there particular features or tools you like? Don’t forget to mention employers’ own sites.
- When worlds collide: How do you feel about employers on Facebook? Are you glad to be able to engage with them or don’t you want them in your social space? Does it worry you that they may see stuff you didn’t intend them to see? Tell us how you feel.
- Future phone: Five years ago mobile phones could barely send texts, now we’d be lost without them. What will your phone do in five years? How will affect how you work, how you get a job and how you build your career?
- My story: Have you got a riveting anecdote about using the internet or your phone to get a job, to make contacts or to fail spectacularly in your careers hunt? Spill the beans.
FEATURES AND ARTICLES
Have you got your own idea for a story? Keep it lively, interesting and well researched. Find a fresh angle and don’t be afraid to take the ideas for a walk. Let your journalistic skills run free. Keep all articles under 800 words. Images, fact boxes and trivia welcomed.
