Journalism Work Experience Internship at The Big Issue Magazine, in Cape Town, South Africa
         

Through my placement I feel I have learnt a huge amount. Work wise I have gained an insight into how a magazine functions and runs but more than that I have seen South Africa from a completely different angle from what I would have had I not been working at The Big Issue.

The best thing about this placement is being given a pretty much free reign over what I did here, the staff are very flexible and accommodating allowing me to work on projects I am interested in.

This placement would suit someone confident to take initiative and work independently. I feel on this placement you get as much out as you put in. I was also fortunate to arrive in time for a big meeting so I learned a lot about the company.

There are 4 other interns of a similar age which is just fantastic, we all get on well and though we're a bit short of computers and space it's all fun. I' m helping with the marketing now, I volunteered as that is what I want to do eventually.

Since then weekends have been busy too, I've already climbed Table Mountain and also been to a few parties and brais, pubs etc, Robben Island, The Waterfront, a musical, the beach oh and I've joined a gym in a bid to get 'that' body for the beach in Thailand!
