Alumni Q&A session | LSFM Creative Enterprise module

Love our graduates back on-campus to share experiences and connect with our students from our annual network event Meet the Graduates (2nd November 2016) to teaching modules. TODAY half a dozen alumni will join our final year students in the Creative Enterprise session and module co-ordinator Zara Healy said: we welcome 6 of our graduates who are all working in multimedia roles. They have all graduated within the last 5 years from LSFM – some are freelance, some are employed full-time and at least 3 have set up their own creative industry companies. The one and a half hour session will be a Question and Answer about how this module’s assessment – pitch and paperwork – has helped graduates in their own pitches, how to develop ideas and present them to help them in their roles in the Media industry.

Gemma Lowe, Class of 2012 | Career Update

It’s been almost a year since I last wrote anything for the LSFM alumni blog and sitting down to write this has made me realise just how much has happened in that time. In my last post I spoke about why I was enjoying my career which, although different from the one I set out achieve with my degree, was rewarding and used many of the skills that the University of Lincoln had taught me. Not long after writing I was offered the role of Press and Media Content Officer for the Lincoln College Group, an opportunity that I was excited to get stuck in to. I have settled well into the role as part of the Marketing and Communications Team working across Lincoln, Newark and Gainsborough Colleges and I am enjoying putting the variety of skills I picked up during my degree to use.  Continue reading

Gemma Lowe, Class of 2012 | Career Update

The last few years have been quite busy for me, I was self-employed for quite some time after completing my Enterprise Inc training and worked for the Young Journalist Academy, providing training and workshops about broadcast media to schools across Lincolnshire. I really enjoyed this but the nature of being self-employed means that opportunities come and go. I continued to complete voice-overs for a while too and enjoyed the freedom of running my own business.

After some time being self-employed I realised that I wanted to try something new and with my experience of working with young people (with the Young Journalist Academy and as part of my Media Production Degree), I decided that I would like to find a job in education. Continue reading
