Remember Gemma Hirst? Writer & Culture Editor for young writing start-up Kettle Mag, and final year on the University of Sunderland’s Journalism BA.
Last Friday, Gemma finished her three-day work experience with ITV Tyne Tees.
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.
From her third day with ITV Tyne Tees, Gemma learned some important lessons – when stories fall through, and you don’t quite manage to get what you hoped for, what do you do? And how much can you prepare for every eventuality?
We really do have to thank Gemma, big time: For being our first vlogger (hopefully of many) to share her “work experience experience” with ITV. For being brave, bold, and transparent with us.
To find out more about Gemma Hirst, you can check out her blog, and check back with 99% for Gemma’s next vlogs.
Want to share your work experience experience with us? We’re keen to share your stories; get in touch via our Twitter, @99Podcast.
And, as always,
Stay productive, stay awesome!
