I just received the great news that Warp Films will be taking me on for an internship in February 2014! I never thought I would get an opportunity like this from a completely different job interview around 5 months ago.
I attended a Frequency Festival internship interview in July and when talking to my lovely interviewer Sam, who happens to be a Yorkshire girl like me, she gave me the contact details for Warp Films in Sheffield from when she did an internship. I sent an email straight away, but heard nothing until 2 weeks ago! I had a Skype interview rather quickly and was offered a place! I was just over the moon, I have always wanted to work in film and now is my chance with a company I admire.
Internships are so vital to a recent graduate, it enables you to build upon existing work experience, find your feet in the media industry and the freedom to experience different working environments.
I’m looking forward to being back on-campus on the 9th December to be a guest speaker, so I hope to see you then … I’ll be in EMMTEC from 5pm to 6pm to talk about work experience, gaining opportunities and hopefully sharing some invaluable advice that I wish I had when I was still in higher education.
