Jamie Baker | University of Sunderland

Sports Journalism BA (Hons)

Work Placement At The Independent

Now that I’m finished with University for 2012, I thought I’d upload the complete video diary of my time on work placement at The Independent, in London, back in November. Hopefully it provides a little insight into what it’s like working at a national newspaper. It was a fantastic opportunity and thoroughly enjoyable, it’s a really good part of the journalism courses here at Sunderland that you actually gain hands on experience.
