Work Experience - The Week Magazine
The Week is a news digest that draws from the best news and reviews in the national press. We aim to examine news stories from many angles, and present in them in a clear, concise, and easy-to-read format.
The Week’s approach means a placement at the magazine will show the applicant how stories are presented in the newspapers, and they will gain an appreciation of the many facets of each individual story. It’s a helpful introduction for those with a passion for print journalism.
- A chance to see how a news magazine is put together
- You’ll sit in on the editorial meeting that shapes the magazine’s content that week
- You will pull together the files that form the basis of each news article
- Each news article is then fact-checked, so attention to detail is key!
