Journalism is one of those professions where it’s not necessarily about what you know but who you know. Of course, you have to be talented but making connections and building a network of contacts is a key aspect. I’m not amazing at doing this at the moment but I’m working on my confidence. However, my dad is doing a wonderful job on my behalf.
First, he put me in touch with Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson who, as regular readers will know, I had the pleasure to meet up with at Westminster the other week. I now hopefully have a great contact who said I can do Work Experience with her one day.
The next famous person my dad had in his taxi was esteemed financial journalist Martin Lewis who said that I should do work experience with moneysavingexpert.com next summer, So, my dad rung me and I immediately e-mailed them to accept the offer. He told me I should contact them in May to confirm dates.
There’s also a ‘Live Reporting’ weekend at Brunel in January so 2013 looks like an exciting year. Let’s just hope that the world doesn’t end on Friday because I have big plans.
Also, Arsenal won 5-2 so the title is back on. We’re going to win the league! And now you’re going to believe us…
THAT IS A JOKE BY THE WAY!
Bye for now!
