I thought the internship with the CBC’s Investigations Unit was a great fit for me. It was highly independent and afforded me a lot of time to work on long-term projects. These are both things that I believe are important for me to be able to produce my best work.

However, I say this with a caveat: you have to want to do this type of work. You can’t expect to have your day (or even week) planned out; you need to be able to decide for yourself how to do your work.
