Even the student of the year cannot find a job

A rather worrying story from Judith Townsend at Journalism.co.uk

Azeem Ahmad, the winner of Birmingham University Student Journalist of the Year award sponsored by Trinity Mirror, cannot find a job, he told Journalism.co.uk.
Ahmad, who specialised in journalism for his BA in Media and Communication at Birmingham City University, told Journalism.co.uk that he is not 'surviving' journalistically despite picking up the Trinity Mirror award.

Despite having skills in in podcasting, video filming and editing for the web, RSS, geotagging, mapping, and online communities and being constantly using twitter and other microblogging tools

He is currently re-employed in a non-media related temporary job, which means he has less time to spend online.
