Overall I would say my experience was positive during my six weeks at The Hockey News. I learned a lot from the senior writers, got valuable advice and my researching and editing skills improved tremendously. However, I would warn future students that there are better opportunities out there. Most of the work I did came during the week an issue was closing, but during weeks where there wasn’t, it was very slow and I found myself with nothing to do. I believe a daily news placement would provide more opportunities for writing and more experience overall. All in all you will enjoy The Hockey News, but in my opinion there are better opportunities available.
