Journalism Work Experience Internship in Perth, Australia

         

Having completed work experience with newspapers before, as a young journalist I jumped at the chance to spend a month with an Australian newspaper during my gap year.

Not only was I able to research and write stories in and around Fremantle, I was given the opportunity to interview local traders, review properties and even become a restaurant critic!

The experience of living away from home for the first time coupled with the pressure of work made this the most challenging month of my life to date. However I will treasure every minute - I've been able to learn and develop my skills as a journalist whilst looking after myself thousands of miles away from home! I've also had the chance to forge friendships which can continue back in England.

What started as an optimistic search on Google when planning an impromptu gap year became an invaluable experience - I'm so grateful to Travellers for the opportunity!

Sept 2013 – Update from James Restall

Hope you're well. Just thought I'd let you know I've been shortlisted for Reporter of the Year at the Guardian Student Media Awards, the top accolade in English student journalism. I'm up against 4 students from other universities and I find out if I've won on November 27. I want to thank you and the Newspaper because you gave me my first taste of investigative journalism, and the skills I learned in Freo have given me the best possible start to my career.
