The best internship……. in the worrrlldd- J Clarkson

You’re probably looking at my title and thinking I’m an idiot. But there’s good reason. I’m sitting on level 1 of the RACQ building in Fortitude Valley. Its a motoring/ anything magazine with an Australias Best Cars judge on hand so my top Gear reference’s are valid. I am about to finish my internship at(…)

week two at cairns post almost over

In a little while I’ll be interviewing the editor, Neil Melloy but before that I’ll go to the Cairns hospital with one of the chief reporters Tarina White, so I’ll be looking out/observing her technique/asking for tips for when I interview Neil. A lot of the reporters are new to The Cairns Post and are quite young so there’s a great dynamic in(…)


Well, I started my internship on the June 19. I was expecting to end after one week, however my editor, Gary Shipway, wanted me to stay until I go back to school. I like to think I dazzled him with my enthusiasm for servitude, but I’m not sure. He wanted to get a better look(…)

The Finale

Well i came to my final two days of my internship at caboolture, and like any tv show now and days it was two part finale. Day 4 and 5 were in a way the days I wrote my final stories and did my last bit of work, because one thing I learned on those(…)

Blog post – Days two, three and four

Blog post day 2 Today was the second day of my internship, And it seems things are well and truly getting into gear. Right off the bat I joined the paper’s reporters in a media conference, it was exactly how they are portrayed in movies, although a little more laid back. Thankfully I was able(…)

Dumb, Drunk and Racist?

Well, I have to say, that show was amusing show. Going into it from the ACA show, I thought, why these four people, who are they? how come they got chosen to go out of the billions? To me, I thought they were Punjabi students, but that wasn’t the case. We meet four indians who(…)

50 – 50

Wow Day 3 of my internship, and what a day it was. I knew what the beginning of this day would be about…..VOX POPS. My experience in the city was good, but you won’t meet the same type of people everywhere. I had to take a street poll involving 6 peoplee for one question and(…)

60 per cent to go

Well there goes day 2 of my inetrnship program at the Quest- Caboolture Shire Herald. It was a good day where I had to call up schools to find out if they were apart of the Woolworths earn and learn program, I had a list of schools to call to and find out if they(…)

Start to the Internship

Well what can I say, the day started off like any other, get myself ready early in the morning, had breakfast, but this time around it wasn’t just for any other ordinary day, it was the start to the internship program up at caboolture. This was a half an hours drive, but I was already(…)

Internship – Day One

The first day of my internship started with a one and a half hour bus ride filled with strangely behaving individuals, and it somehow seemed shorter than the half hour train ride I normally take to college. From the moment I woke up and got out of bed I was sure that today was the(…)

Are you a Hybrid person? Or an Environmentalist?

So I jumped on the Toyota Prius website and the image of three people popped up with their long beards and greenpeace membership cards. Implying that the Toyota Prius range is 100% for people who like Koalas. Toyota say that because it has a 3.9l/100km fuel rating that it’s economical to drive. That 3.9 rating(…)
