Interview Christina Ongley – Bundaberg News-Mail Editor

Few would argue that some in this world are destined to do a certain job, as if they were put on this earth for one specific purpose. For a select few that purpose is played out when winning a gold medal at the Olympic games in front of 80,000 cheering fans, an important moment no(…)

Second time around

Learn the Courier In A Week

Day 1. Arriving at the office of the Courier Mail, I surprisingly find the revolving door isn’t revolving and all other entry points are locked. A security guard eventually opens a door for me and I meet with the other interns (including Harry from class) while our contact is notified. First we attend training which(…)
