'Let your network, friends and family know that you're looking for a job. Actively ask them for suggestions and ideas. And stay positive. Something good will always come your way.'
'I've always wanted to do something with language. When I was a kid I used to make my own newspaper. Therefore a master's in Journalism was the perfect choice for me, but I did have some doubts in the beginning. I thought that perhaps you had to be very extraverted. Luckily I trusted my own feeling. I'm interested in people and I want to tell stories.
During my studies and internship at Kidsweek - a weekly paper for kids - I was given many opportunities to tell stories. I liked the practical side of the master's programme a lot. Next to writing and conducting interviews, I also learned how to make videos and photo reports, how to publish items and I worked on a cross-media portfolio. I still make grateful use of that knowledge today. I would like to make a podcast at BarentsKrans for example. My degree and internship laid the foundation of my career. It provides many possibilities!'
