Friday, February 15th, 2013

The penultimate day of my work experience on the Sports Desk, at The Independent, in London brought plenty of work on match previews for Saturday’s paper!

Day three of my second week at the Independent was a little bit livelier than day two thankfully! There was plenty of talk in the office about the Madrid Vs Utd clash and I got stuck into more match previews.

My second day back at The Independent was another quiet one for me! It can be frustrating sometimes when you’ve not had much to do all day, but I’m still learning all the time, listening to what people have to say, and enjoying being surrounded by award winning journalists!

 

 

My 2nd Week on The Independent Sports Desk (Part I)

Monday, February 11th, 2013

I’m back in London again this week for my second stint on the sports desk of the Independent newspaper. As I did back in November, I will be providing a day by day video diary of my time inside Northcliffe House and updating you all on my progress.

This is the final week of compulsory work placement that I’ll be doing for my degree at the University of Sunderland, and hopefully it’ll provide another fascinating learning curve for me.
