What our Interns say...

Iylia Kamal

My 5 months with Astro Awani was pleasant and wonderful. I got to experience a lot of hands-on field work like interviews, press conferences, and events such as the BAJET2015 Special Feature. Things were especially great because the Awani team was always friendly and ever-willing to guide and advise. An exciting yet humble start for those venturing into journalism!

I’ve gained valuable hands-on work experience at Astro as the Youth Outreach team was benevolent and willing to train me. They provided me with the experience I would need to secure a job, along with varied networking opportunities. I was able to test and refine my skills in a real-world setting and I am now more confident in my career goals. My piece of advice? Interns should be enthusiastic to ask questions.

Oh la la! The internship journey was AWE-SOME!!! Definitely an EMPOWERING one-of–a-kind experience that I wouldn’t swap with anything else! Having met and interacted with experienced colleagues in the world of journalism (or as one of my supervisors put it, the “big bad, world of journalism”) taught me so much. “How to effectively assess subject matter in a variety of contexts, how to interact with diverse peoples, and how to strike a conversation with wit and humour.”
