Our media mentoring is an initiative between the Lincoln School of Media and the University of Lincoln Careers & Employability Service. The mentoring pilot is part of our successful LSM Network, which you probably know created this blog and started ‘Meet the Graduates’ to name just a couple of things managed by the network. The LSM has always been keen for our alumni to be part of our activities and events. The media mentoring pilot is another strand to enhance our link between industry and academia as we celebrate twenty years of media students into graduates. Thanks to all our mentors, majority of the twenty or so are our alumni, and student-mentees. We’re looking forward to hearing how the mentoring is going, so please share your experiences here! We’ll be reviewing the pilot’s progress later in the year. Our media mentoring was launched the morning of Meet the Graduates in February 2014. LSM’s student crew, via New Media Lincs was Year 2 Rory McCarney, Year 3 Kirsty Gibson and Kamil Rewers, captured this summary about our mentoring pilot.
Call out for creatives from Hazel Donnelly at New Media Lincs. It’s the LSM’s social enterprise initiative, which links students with businesses and arts & crafts organisations to provide creative media solutions. Hazel sums up the latest opportunities for students:
Can you design a mobile app for the NHS to promote Family and Healthy Lifestyle services? This is an exciting project with immense potential. Open to Year 2 and Year 3 students.
Our fledgling business New Media Lincs requires a poster made to promote our services to students. The poster will be used for the Careers Fair this year at the university and for subsequent promotional opportunities.
