PA Features

Category: 
Company: 

In terms of requirements, do suggest to the students that they let us know what areas of features they’re interested in i.e. interiors, film, TV, music, fashion etc. That way, we’ll try to ensure they have the opportunity to chat with the relevant writers/editors here during their placement, i.e. if a student loves fashion, we’ll make sure we introduce them to the Fashion Editor (though they’ll be expected to work across all areas of features). I’d say the most important thing is enthusiasm – if the students show a positive attitude they tend to get a great deal out of the placement, including by-lines!
