In September I was offered a 6 month
contract with MTV as their creative intern, and upon nearing the end of my contract,
have now been offered a year contract at the BBC as production co ordinator.
I just wanted to say a massive thank you ... I would hugely recommend
this to anyone, especially those who want to break into media via an alternative
path ... my employer said she was impressed with the month I did in Australia, because it showed I had
the initiative to get out there and do something productive, and it was something
that stood out amongst the hundreds of CVs she received!
I really hope you continue with your programs
across the world, and that people benefit from them as much as I did. It really
is something I'll never forget. Thanks a million.
I have just finished my medicine interviews
and I cannot do justice to how important my experience in India was to my application,
so much so that yesterday I received an offer from Manchester (which was where I
really wanted to go!).
Not only this, but my experience contributed
to me getting a job in the NHS. My experience in a foreign healthcare setting gave
me something great to talk about in interview and as a result I gained employment
as a healthcare assistant (or auxillary nurse) on a surgical ward, again something
that impressed at interview, and a job I am not sure I would have gained without
my Indian experience, especially when you consider how competitive job applications
in the UK are today!
