The communications industry, comprising professions like journalism, public relations, the media and events management, is a vibrant and creative field that is ideal for anyone with a flair for words, modern media and buzz creation. Organisations are placing strong emphasis on hiring those with outstanding communication skills and an online course in communications can lead you to any number of exciting career options.

Being a communications professional is all about learning how to convey messages effectively, reaching your target audience and creating the right kind of spin and hype. Depending on your particular area, you will need to learn specific techniques and strategies to achieve this goal.

Aspiring journalists can learn journalistic techniques and styles with a course in freelance journalism. By working as a freelance journalist, you will have the flexibility to manage your own time and the ability to work across a range of interesting projects for different clients. You will become skilled in interview techniques, sourcing and preparing leads and marketing your work, to ensure you always get the scoop and know how to write about it in an engaging, informative manner.
