Work Experience Placement Student
About the placement/internship

Why did you decide to do a placement/internship?

I decided to do a placement because in journalism you need a lot of experience and since I'm not from the UK I knew that doing work placements was important if I wanted to succeed in this career. I chose this one specifically because PA is a large and reputable news organisation and having some experience with them would make my CV look better.

How did you find your placement/internship?

Main responsibilities

I assisted reporters in research tasks, looked for stories and shadowed members of the team in court.

Typical day

A typical day was going to court with whoever was covering courts that day, shadowing them, taking shorthand notes during cases to assist them when they were writing the report and compare notes to make sure everything was accurate. Then I spent the rest of the day back in the office assisting other reporters in research tasks and wrote a couple of lines for a package story.
