Emily Pearce is a graduate of Dual Honours BA programme in Media, Communications & Culture (MCC) and History, 2015. She completed an internship at the digital media company, Rufus Leonard, and has now secured a position as a Junior Copywriter and Social Media Editor. On Tuesday 11th October at 3pm (Screening Room, Media Building), Emily will be talking to current MCC students about how she secured her position and her experiences in the world of work. If you want to find out how to apply for an internship position and get a foot in the door of a new media company, come and listen to Emily’s talk. All MCC students are welcome.
We are delighted to welcome Emily back to Keele for this event. While at Keele, Emily wrote her media dissertation on the construction of identity on social media. For her work, she was awarded the Laura Mulvey Prize for best dissertation (2014-2015) and the project helped her secure her current position! There could not be a better example of how theory, analysis & practice go hand in hand- an approach that is the unique signature of Keele’s Media, Communications & Culture programme.
Thank you Emily for offering to share your story & experiences. We really appreciate it!
