More pressure on us then ;)

Also, Ian - don't know if this was posted a while ago and I missed it - but I *think* Lewis, a former post-grad I believe, now works for the Swale desk of the Kent Messenger...he was there on a temp basis then applied for a full-time post over summer. 

If he never went here, I'll feel foolish!

I'm pretty sure that Dan May has landed a job as well, it's not strictly journalsim I don't think but pretty close!

Thanks Jemma, I'd missed that - I've updated the list.

Ian Reeves is head of the Centre for Journalism

I believe Nick Gutteridge is working at the Surrey Advertiser?

I also believe Ali Houghton now has a newsy job as well!

Hey Ian! 

Nikki has done super well working as a runner for BBC Newsround!

I have just signed a contract to work as a junior reporter at the Hinckley Times, where I have been freelancing. 

Hope everyone at the CFJ is doing well.

MIss you all! 

Great news Harriet - I feel another update coming on, with details of these and others. More next week. I think it's Newsbeat, rather than Newsround, that Nikki is working on.

Ian Reeves is head of the Centre for Journalism

Thanks Ian! Everyone seems to have done really well!

And it's deffinitely Newsround that she's at- up in Salford.

Harriet, that is great news. Really well done. We are very proud of you.
