Media Jobs Fair goes from Strength to Strength!

Now in its third successful year, The Wired Sussex Media Jobs + Skills Fair is the biggest event of its kind south of London. It takes place on Thursday 4th March 2010 at the Brighton Corn Exchange with doors opening at 12 noon.

The fair is for anyone looking to start or accelerate their career in media, or has ambitions to become a media freelancer but doesn’t know how, or for those that have had enough of commuting and would like to understand more about the opportunities on their doorstep.

Whether it’s finding out more about a specific career move into TV, journalism, computer and video gaming, animation and design, marketing or the web and associated industries, or simply learning about the skills needed to gain entry to those industries, then the Wired Sussex Media Jobs + Skills Fair is the place to head for on 4th March.

Shrugging off any signs of economic gloom, the local media sector continues to grow and their demand for great talent shows no sign of diminishing. Around 20 companies who currently have job vacancies will be attending the fair with a view to recruiting. They include WPM, Madgex, Epic, Brightwave, Kineo, Leapfrogg, Fresh Egg, iCrossing, Zoe Mode and Propellernet. Brighton Institute of Modern Music, Journalist Works and Access to Music will be on hand to offer invaluable advice on the training and skills required to succeed in their sectors, plus the University of Sussex and all the other major universities and colleges in the region will also be there to offer help and guidance.

The Sussex Internship Programme will be on hand to provide guidance to graduates about the UK’s best internship scheme for kick starting a media career.

Free to attend, the fair also includes a series of “Make It Into Media” panel sessions in which experts will demystify different aspects of the industry.

The event will climax with a keynote talk by BBC TV’s "Virtual Revolution" presenter Dr. Aleks Krotoski entitled "Big Breaks in the Digital Age". Organised by the University of Sussex as part of their “Enterprise Thursdays” series of events, Aleks will share tales of her entrepreneurial career path including advice for students wanting to big in the media world.

“I am delighted to have been asked to speak at this event. The region has proved its ability to deliver ground-breaking work in the media sectors, with a plethora of local businesses enjoying success with major blue-chip clients. There is a real creative air and enthusiasm here, and I fully expect more companies and talented individuals to reach success in the region.” says Aleks.

And if this wasn’t enough, “Made In Brighton” will showcase some of the media content currently coming out of Brighton, confirming the city’s reputation for being the creative hub of the region. Wired Sussex director Phil Jones said;  ”If you want to kick start or grow your career in media, then this event is a one day one stop shop for you. With the growth of Brighton’s media sector showing no signs of slowing, there are real opportunities for the right people. We are really pleased that Brighton now hosts the biggest single media recruitment, skills and advice event south of London.”
