Have you ever thought you’d love a career in Media, but wanted to work in a niche part of the industry? Perhaps you wanted to be a sports reporter or a production assistant, but you weren’t sure how to make your dream come to fruition.
Media is a vast industry with endless opportunities. This flexibility allows people with niche interests in particular topics to showcase their skills to the world.
The perfect example of being able to specialise in media is our student, Slade Perkins, who worked at SpeedCafe.com as part of his Certificate III in Screen and Media. Throughout his placement, Slade put the pedal to the metal and experienced what it is like to work in the media.
