“Jess Goodman’s knowledge of the Birmingham music scene is only matched by her ability to seemingly go to every gig, ever.”
– Mark Riley, HOOTING & HOWLING
“Always willing to undertake and surpass all expected achievements with her fantastic work rate and ability to work outside of her comfort zone. She shows fantastic ability with our popular ‘Band of the Day’ feature, ensuring that articles are scheduled and posted on time, with all deadlines met and no fuss caused. I believe Jessica would be a fantastic candidate for a permanent, full-time role once she completes her degree.”
– Richard Franks, COUNTERACT
“You’re by far one of the most hardworking members of the team, and I honestly appreciate everything you do for the site. I love your enthusiasm and I want more people like you on the site. Your passion is undeniable and I know that you give everything your all. I honestly really appreciate you as a person, and as a team member. Any praise from anyone is more than deserved.”
– Bekka Collins, VENTURE
“It is clear that you manage your time well, and there is plenty of evidence of your ability to organise your access to gigs and write and submit your articles on time. You encounter some hurdles – stolen purse, wi fi problems, public transport, spiked drinks – you clearly understand that these are not excuses for failing to deliver. Reliability is a huge asset in a freelance journalist – especially music journalists. You are right to be proud of your talent as a music journalist. To quote Lee Booker (Curb, bassist): “You are such a good writer”. This comes partly from natural ability and partly from five years of practice which has helped you to hone your skills. Your writing is fluent and concise and beautifully structured – and you also manage to get variety into your language. You clearly have reviews down to a fine art.”
– Susan Heseltine, TUTOR @ BCU
