My Internship Role: Journalism intern_entertainment beat

My key responsibilities: As an entertainment reporter i was send to press conferences and for shoots of daily soaps. I had to come up with thier bytes and then uplink the story in the MCR.. Give it for editing and then write an anchor link for the same. This was the daily routine. Apart from this any web search or paper work was done by me.

The impact that I made: The appreciation which i got from my mentor(head) is worth! Apart from this my head encouraged me to give an interview during the recruitment process but my studies became obstacle at that point.

What I learnt/Skills i picked up: YOU HAVE TO BE SELF LEARNER. There is no one, u can rely on. I think, without internship i was just a bookish person. My internship gave me a lot experience about how a channel runs. No matter what u cant say a NO. No matter what u have to get the byte. No matter what u cant go home without completing the story. I realized that i am good in script writing and good on screen!

The best thing about the Internship: The work environment. People around me and the experience i got each day is valuable!

Would I recommend an internship in this company to my friends: Sure –  Not a bad place to intern in

My internship Experience in “One Word”: Ifoundmyself

My internship “Cloud 9 Moment”: When I got Sara khan’s byte when no channel was able to get. All channels were thrown out of the set but I managed to get her reaction after her divorce with Ali. I got a lot of appreciation for that.
