The turn of the year offers us a chance to reflect on our achievements in the last 12 months and consider what the future holds - plus a well-earned break, of course.

There are two issues here: one, your career choices within journalism are practically infinite. Two, social media gives the impression that all of our peers are laser-focused and accelerating in their careers. If we are in a rut, it can be an isolating place.

The truth is that sometimes, our lack of confidence can be the biggest barrier to success. In our final podcast episode of 2022, we want to fix that.

Our guest is Dhruti Shah, a journalist who spent nearly 14 years with BBC News across various editorial roles, before pivoting her career last year. She has since written books, started doing public speaking and event moderation, plus coaching and consultancy work.

Listen in to her inspiring story to give your career ambitions the jumpstart it needs. Shah provides firsthand advice for gaining essential industry allies and having the confidence to succeed.
