So last week I headed to the Huffington Post for a week of work experience on the Students desk. Having done a fair amount of work experience now, I wasn’t really that nervous for this placement, just looking forward to getting back into the newsroom.
Over the Easter break, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to do work experience at three fantastic newspapers: the Coventry Telegraph, the Times and the Guardian.
Here I am going to write a little about my experiences to give a brief overview of what I learned from the three weeks, if you’re interested – and of course, in case you’re considering applying to any of them!
When I decided that I would take an English Literature degree instead of a Journalism degree, I knew that I would be playing the time management game right from the very beginning.
