The amount of reading and writing I did during my degree has stood me in good stead, giving me the versatility and competence to write a colour piece or a match report, and showing a flexibility that looks good on my CV.
I've worked for the Huffington Post UK for over a year now as their sports reporter, having been at Sabotage Times before that for a few months, so this is my first full-time job.
The sport channel went live a month after I joined in order to coincide with the 2012 London Olympics. It's a cliché, but it's a dream job – I've wanted to do this since I was 11 or 12 and it's been wonderful so far. I interview footballers, gold medalists, sporting greats and covered London 2012.
If I could give any advice to current students it would be enjoy yourselves and maintain your career intentions. I had a wonderful three years at Kent and it's imperative you capitalise on the independence it offers. Work-wise, it may feel frivolous but you do need to be dedicated to the study side and afford it plenty of commitment, even though it is easy to get complacent.
