UCIJAM Students Explore Creative Careers in London

14 students joined UChicago Careers in Journalism, Arts, and Media for its fourth annual trek to London. The trek gave students the opportunity to visit leading British media and cultural organizations and learn how they can prepare themselves for careers in these fields both within the UK and globally. The site visits emphasized the importance of a diverse and versatile skillset  and that there's no one set path for a career in journalism, arts, and media.

It was a very enriching and inspiring trek… the people I met on the Trek all have very diverse career paths and made me realize how many opportunities I have. I also had lots of meaningful conversations with my colleagues about their aspirations and career goals --  a wonderful opportunity and would definitely recommend to my friends!" -Helen Han, AB'18
