Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion - St Hilda’s Angli­can School for Girls work place­ment stu­dent Josie Brierley

HAV­ING the op­por­tu­nity to em­bark on such a ben­e­fi­cial work ex­pe­ri­ence place­ment at Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group has given me an in­side per­spec­tive on a jour­nal­ism ca­reer. For my work ex­pe­ri­ence I thought I would just be fetch­ing cof­fee or pho­to­copy­ing, but to my sur­prise not only were there no pho­to­copiers or cof­fee ma­chines, I was ac­tu­ally tak­ing part in real jobs that jour­nal­ists spend years work­ing to­wards. In the short but mem­o­rable five days, I was able to meet many in­spir­ing peo­ple, sit in on var­i­ous sto­ries, write briefs, go to the Royal Show and even hold a snake! I have gained knowl­edge that I will def­i­nitely use in prepa­ra­tion for the fu­ture and dis­cov­ered a help­ful in­sight into a ca­reer I am ex­tremely in­ter­ested in.
