WORK HERE WAS A REAL EX­PE­RI­ENCE

Eastern Reporter - - Opinion - Mar­ley Davies

I WORKED at Community News­pa­per Group as a work ex­pe­ri­ence stu­dent last week. This was a very dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence for me as I am used to me­chan­ics and farm­ing. Working at this of­fice was re­ally in­ter­est­ing and I was lucky enough to meet a lot of great peo­ple. I got to try lots of new things in my week here, such as pho­tograph­ing San­dover medal win­ner Haiden Schloithe, cov­er­ing events such as the City of Vin­cent Lo­cal His­tory Pho­to­graphic Awards and writ­ing an ar­ti­cle about The Big Camp Out. I at­tended a Devel­op­ment Assess­ment Panel meet­ing and lis­tened in on an in­ter­view with a Bayswa­ter res­i­dent who was against a pro­posed devel­op­ment in their area. Be­ing a jour­nal­ist is dif­fer­ent to what I ex­pected... it can be busy one minute and calm the next, de­pend­ing on what is hap­pen­ing in the community. Com­plet­ing work ex­pe­ri­ence here has helped me de­ter­mine what I could pos­si­bly do as a fu­ture ca­reer, which will most likely be in media.
