Your Work Experience Experience: Gemma Hirst, ITV Tyne Tees – Day 1

13120751_10154782571584746_1905606792_o.jpgHello, Creatives!  On her commute home from her first day with ITV Tyne Tees, emerging journalist Gemma Hirst sent us this photo…

Who wouldn’t be excited with a pass to ITV’s building, right?

Let’s back up a bit.  Here at 99% Perspiration, we want to make sure that you make the most out of your work experience placement, so we’ve asked a few key bloggers to document their “work experience experience”, and share it with us; the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Last weekend, Gemma (Culture Editor with Kettle Mag & final year Journalism BA student) shared her first vlog post with us – on what she expected work experience would be like, and how she got involved with ITV.

One day, two articles & tons of advice in, Gemma Hirst returns to share her first impressions of her ITV experience.  And, even after just one day in, Gemma shares her thoughts on one important question; why is a work experience placement valuable?

Kudos to weatherman Ross Hutchinson, right?
