You get thrown in at the deep end at one of London’s few independent weekly newspapers. On your feet for most of the week you will interview, photograph, research and write. Great feedback and direction offered as well.
Men’s Health has to be one of the most relaxed offices I’ve ever worked in – it’s a haven of fashion, fitness and man-banter. The boys do love a good brew now and again, but you’ll still be writing valuable bylines.
Working in a small team I was involved from day one, writing and researching articles, checking facts and subbing copy. I felt needed in the office and got on well with the team who took the time to chat to me and offer their advice.
Like the rest of NYC, NYLON relies on its interns. What I lacked in pay, I gained in education and experience. The level of responsibility given to interns is a credit to the magazine, and while the bylines were fantastic, the memories were better.
Thank you for stimulating my brain with this bright and observant post.
