Global News is definitely the place to be to put your skills to play. In one building, I was surrounded by industry professionals across all journalistic platforms and every aspect of the behind the scenes production. Each day was something new while bustling with the quick work pace, but from the get-go, the people I teamed up with for projects put their trust in me, and gave me real work to do.
Although my name and face was not tied to any of the published pieces, I went home each night feeling accomplished and productive, and many people throughout the office appreciated my contributions. Any time I created a comprehensive database for our investigative research, fact-check scripts, helped with editing and any other task I hopped on, I always received acknowledgement, feedback and thanks. An internship at Global News is a huge door to walk through, but it’s worth it.
