During my internship at CBC, I was given many opportunities to develop my skills as a journalist, gaining real professional experiences. From the first day, I shadowed producers and learned how the show operated. I was encouraged to pitch a lot – giving me many chances to get my ideas on air. My team was very welcoming and open to teaching me new things. Thus, I feel very lucky with my placement as I was trusted with a lot of responsibility that would exceed what an intern would usually get. As a result, I was offered a job after my internship.
