"The placement at CheckdMedia has been extremely beneficial for both my course and my future employment prospects. I’ve learned a lot about how social media based journalism works in terms of generating engagement and how to adapt my writing to a different style. I’ve really enjoyed working in a more relaxed office environment with staff who have been very welcoming. I think is extremely helpful in terms of being creative and generating quality and engaging content. This placement will be invaluable in my final year module work at university." - Tom Newton, University of Huddersfield student.
