Position title and short job description:
Working highlight so far:
There’s a few!
What are the things you enjoy most about your job?
It doesn't feel like work! I get to experience things I would never see in a ‘normal’ job. One day you are covering a factory fire and the next you are at a celebrity function. It’s always changing and you never get bored. I get to meet the most amazing variety of people every day. The contacts you build in this job are amazing.
An area in which you have needed assistance:
The hardest part is getting your foot in the door - but don’t expect anyone to assist you with that!
What do you intend to do in the future?
I intend to stay in journalism. I hope to move around the organisation and try a few different roles.
#1 tip for current students studying your course:
It’s never too early to start getting experience. If you are lucky enough to get a work placement make the most of it. It is amazing how many university interns sit there and do nothing.
