Interning at the Sunshine Coast Daily

This semester I completed a great internship at APN’s Sunshine Coast Daily newspaper.

I was given a broad range of tasks during my time at the Daily, from attending morning newsroom meetings, doing Vox Pops, writing general news and feature articles, and going to an event with the paper’s photographer.

The most important thing I learned from this placement was the increasingly multi-dimensional role of a journalist. The reporter not only needs to be a writer, but also a cameraman, sub-editor and tech-wiz. A lot of the younger journalists start out by basically writing and producing the weekly papers on their own, which is a huge workload.

This experience has definitely made me eager to join the work force at the end of this year.
