QUT Journalism and Media Society (QUT JAMS)

“Voices to Listen to”

Here at the QUT Journalism and Media Society, we’re looking to interact with each other under three main pillars of engagement. Our Social, Collaborative and Industry-related platforms aim to provide our members with a multitude of opportunities and experiences to network amongst peers and augment skills in their respective fields.

Social – Throughout the year, we’ll be hosting a bunch of social events and parties that will give ample opportunities for members to get down and party with one another!

Collaboration – This platform is all about peer-to-peer work. We provide opportunities for members to collaborate on projects such as audio podcasts, video content and written pieces. We aim to provide as many channels as possible to establish professional identities for our members and help build their portfolios for future employment opportunities.

Industry – Over the course of the year, QUT JAMS will source industry professionals to participate in panel discussion nights. We want to bring you into the world of specific areas of the media and journalism industry that you might not be exposed to throughout your studies. In March 2015 we hosted our first panel night, which was focussed on Sports Media, and are in the midst of planning many more!

Come and join QUT JAMS – a delightfully zingy condiment to compliment your bread and butter degree.
