From May to December 2015 I was a content writer for CareerAddict, a site aimed at 18-34 year old graduates and young professionals. I wrote a total of 123 articles, which you can find here, or simply watch the slideshow below.
Made For Mums (previously Baby Expert) is the website associated with the magazine Prima Baby. I was there for a two week work placement during my final year at university, and my main job was to check each day’s newspapers for stories like the below that could be rewritten for the website.
Additionally, I had the chance to write two original features related to one of the articles and the text for a competition page.
As a part of my Journalism course at Kingston University, I was expected to work on the award-winning university newspaper in my final year, both as an editor and as a writer. I wrote an article, a feature, a film review and a NIB, as well as a weekly round up of education news using Storify.
I took on another two week work placement at The Guardian, where I worked on the books desk. My main tasks was to work through their backlog of reader emails, which needed to be edited and uploaded on to the website, but I also had the chance to write three quizzes and create an events column using InCopy.
The Cyprus Weekly is one of the biggest English-language newspapers in Cyprus, where I did a one week work placement while at university. I wrote two English-language articles from Greek press releases and also got to write a feature based on another story.
