Journalists encounter many ‘sliding doors’ moments at the beginning of their career but it can be challenging to know which opportunities to seek out, how to get noticed by the right people, whose advice you should listen to, how to upskill while working and when it’s time to take on the next challenge.

Join Neary Ty from Nine, Lyndal Rowlands from Al Jazeera and Daniel McCulloch from the Australian Associated Press for a discussion on how to build your journalism career.


Neary Ty has been a reporter at 9 NEWS in Melbourne for more than a decade. She’s covered major events including bushfires, terror attacks, royal tours, COVID lockdown protests and the Bourke Street tragedy. She’s broken a number of major exclusive stories involving high-profile criminal figures and has a strong interest in covering youth crime and the justice system.

Lyndal Rowlands is a journalist and audio maker. She has reported for Al Jazeera English, ABC RN, Audible Originals, The Saturday Paper, the Guardian and the investigative climate change podcast Drilled. She was previously a UN correspondent in New York for Inter Press Service (IPS).

Daniel McCulloch is Deputy Editor at Australian Associated Press. Daniel started his career at regional newspapers before getting a taste for wire journalism. He’s covered politics, courts and crime across several states and manages a national team of reporters.
