Yesterday I attended an assssment day at Channel 4 HQ. It was a three-stage assessment along with 20 other hopefuls, trying to get a place on a media production traineeship with one of Channel 4’s production companies.
The first stage was a presentationon on a preset brief, followed by a group task and a final interview. Quality breakfast and lunch was provided for us, which included a BBQ option on an outdoor courtyard. The entire day was fantastic and so eye-opening. The building was amazing- just as cool as you would imagine Channel 4 HQ to be and the staff were brilliant.
I found out this afternoon anyway that I didnt get the placement. Of course I’m so disappointed, but I’m also a little more enlightened from the experience. It was an amazing opportunity and can only have increased my chances of landing something next time, when I’m even more suited to a place.
Just got to keep moving forward.
