“It's a combination of very sound digital journalism skills and lecturers who come from and remain deeply connected to the industry which is seeing such an extraordinary number of Macleay journalism students employed. Having a complete suite of digital skills means Macleay students are essentially job-ready even before they complete their degrees. Having lecturers with a wealth of contacts in an industry which is searching for young, digitally trained graduates is the icing on the cake.
I am bowled over by the number of calls I receive from employers looking for young journalists who don’t need to go through the traditional cadetship process. They see that two years at Macleay is probably the best cadetship you can get.” – Monica Attard, Head of Journalism
