“I was lucky enough to join Channel 3 as work experience through their partnership with Drive Forward.
Initially I was excited to start my week at Channel 3, however also slightly terrified as I had never worked in any type of office setting before! I expected to have to make teas and help with some photocopying, which I was more than prepared to do; at this point I was just glad to come across a work experience opportunity that wasn’t in retail!
The passion of everyone working at Channel 3 is genuinely palpable and their career journeys to get where they are now, inspiring
Upon my arrival I was pleasantly surprised when I was handed a whole week’s schedule of learning activities with numerous departments within Channel 3. My fears melted away as I was greeted by Sarah and Naomi who were incredibly friendly and welcoming and as I later came to find out, so was everyone in their office.
Having completed this week, I have gained invaluable information about how a business works, from accessing the market to all the teams required to support a successful project. My eyes have been opened to whole range of career paths I had never considered before or even knew existed. The passion of everyone working at Channel 3 is genuinely palpable and their career journeys to get where they are now, inspiring. I feel like I have come away with a new zest for working hard and a drive to achieve my own career goals.”
