Hopefully, I can get an internship for next semester because I do need more experience learning how the field of journalism works. In other words, what to expect from my bosses and editors.
Thus far, I’ve been on the yearbook staff for two years in high school, intern at a local newspaper station in my hometown, worked as a photographer for my college digital online newspaper (still considering to do more work for them) and blogged for the past three years.
Some experience is better than none, but it’s important to have the drive and dedication to work hard to get the story right and published. Deadline driven, as I should become. I have considered that I need to learn more by going from one internship to the next until I graduate in the spring.
Being positive and always communicating with the editors will help open the doors. It’s never too late to connect with them while still in college, working on my Bachelor’s degree.
