Telum Talks To...Robin Ewing, Director of International Journalism, Hong Kong Baptist University
The global pandemic has put everyone in an unprecedented situation, including journalism students who have left their classrooms and ventured into the uncharted waters of the job market.
But despite the unforeseen challenges and uncertainties, senior lecturer Robin Ewing believes that the students of journalism will continue to thrive as they have skill sets that set them apart from their competitors. "There is always going to be a need for people who can tell stories, sift through information, verify it, and provide timely and accurate information in an engaging way," she said.
In a video interview with Telum Media, the Director of International Journalism of Hong Kong Baptist University also revealed how her university is upping its game by providing students with training on technology such as drone journalism and VR-powered storytelling, and shared tips on how students can create their own brand to impress potential employers.
