Working under the Content Development department at Star Media Group for the past 3 months turned out to be an incredibly valuable experience, and one that I would definitely recommend to anyone that wants to dip their fingers in the media world. Having never really had any working experience, I was seeking for an internship opportunity that would benefit me in my future career. Being a Broadcasting student at Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus, this opportunity at Star seemed like a perfect fit.
With zero knowledge in the journalism field, I was incredibly nervous when I was required to write my first script for StarTv. However, it was for this very reason that this internship is more useful compared to the others that I have researched. It gives its interns a chance to experience real responsibilities unlike other typical internship which requires you to file, photocopy and send out mails. From writing scripts to covering exciting events, this internship is a good exposure and eye-opener for future young adults who are aspiring to be journalists. Although I was feeling nervous in the beginning, I certainly got used to it and I was enjoying my time here. Moreover, I was given such positive reinforcement from everyone here including my mentor, which made my experience at Star Media Group even better.
I wouldn’t trade this experience in for anything. I can truly say that I have learnt more throughout my internship at Star Media Group then at Taylor’s.
To the future interns, take advantage of your time here and you’ll get as much out of this internship as you are willing to put in. Have fun!
