That means that any and every vacancy for media jobs is likely to receive plenty of applications. Completing work experience in the media is one way to make your application stand out from the crowd and increase your chances of finding paid employment.

Where to find work experience placements in media

Where to find media work placements largely depends on the sector that you are interested in working in. Are you interested in broadcast media, print media (newspaper or magazine?) or digital media? Work experience placements are available for all three.

How to find work experience placements in media

Work experience placements are rarely advertised. If you want a placement, you have to go out and find one. You can start by making a list of all the media companies in your area that you would be interested in working with, and then writing them a letter to inquire about placement opportunities.

Tips for applying for media work experience placements

Companies offering work experience placements don't expect candidates to be experienced or qualified. However, you will need to be passionate about media and enthusiastic about gaining experience with this company. A good knowledge of what the company does is vital.

Also include practical information like how long you would like the work placement to last and what date you would like to start on.
