Media Circle, the trade body specialising in media training, has
relaunched its Graduate Gateway site and is planning to go on the road
to promote media as a graduate career.
A working group, chaired by MediaCom's joint managing director, Jane
Ratcliffe, is seeking to recruit a band of representatives from media
owners and agencies prepared to give presentations to university
Media Circle's general secretary, Terry Wheeler, said: "When graduates
think of the media they think of journalism or TV, they still don't know
about the careers available at media owners or at media agencies."
Graduate Gateway was launched a year ago but it has been relaunched to
provide more detail about the skills required to work in the media and
has added a job section.
The Media Circle working group is drawing up a media schedule to promote
the Graduate Gateway site and Chrysalis Radio has offered free airspace.
