It is that time of year that a new batch of journalism students are about to hit the job market as their courses draw to a close.

But whether you are looking for your first break or a change in career direction, advice on how to progress in your next job application is always worth listening to.

In this week’s podcast, we have two guests who will be telling us about what it takes to get employed at their titles. We are joined by Emily Gorton, internal editorial recruiter at Reach Plc, and Maria Breslin, digital editor, Liverpool Echo - a Reach Plc title.

They they are taking us through the hiring process, from the initial application phase to sitting down for interview. The pair tells us exactly what applicants can do to maximise their chances of moving through to the next round - and hopefully land the position they are eyeing up.

On the job hunt? Your next position could be waiting for you on the jobs board, where you can find a range of roles to suit your experience, region and sector.
