As this year’s journalism graduates prepare to take on the world, upstart is keeping its eye on what happens next to the class of 2011.

If you’ve recently completed a journalism degree anywhere in Australia, and landed a journalism-related job, please drop us a line at and let us  know where you studied, where you’re working, and what it took to get there.

At our home base here at La Trobe University, Matt Dixon – until recently part of upstart’s editorial team – recently packed his bags and headed west for a job with the Kalgoorlie Miner.

Of course not everyone can make the transition from university student to full time journalist so speedily.

But it’s reassuring to learn that Matt isn’t the only one to land his first journo job.

Here’s the growing list of 2011 alumni who’ve joined the ranks of the fourth estate. You can follow them on our Class of 2011 list on Twitter.
