Work experience has caused a bit of a stir in the nationals recently, what with Clegg and Cameron slugging out over social mobility. In an industry like the media, controversy over its almost mandatory unpaid placements is never far away.
But bloggers Wannabe Hacks have taken a step back from the debates about how to solve a problem like work experience to ask: What are the 50 best journalism placements?
The Wannabe Hacks – who have “all done reams of work experience themselves” – will be asking aspiring journalists to nominate their best placement in no more than 40 words.
They can be paid or unpaid, and contributors are asked to include the publication name and section if applicable.
Nominations can be sent to Ben Whitelaw on firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is Friday, 27 May at 5pm.
