Advice on college course/career

    Posting this in personal issues as the DCU forum has little activity.

    So I might be doing Communications or Journalism at DCU (I'm waiting for the CAO offer on Sept 11)

    I've heard that these courses are very broad and on their own wouldn't be considered worthy enough without a good level of work experience. I'm wondering where I should get internship during my course. I've read that I should apply to TV stations (RTE, TV3, 3e, Virgin Media), Radio stations (98fm, 4fm, NewsTalk) and newspapers (Irish Independent, Irish Times)

    The thing is, will I be able to get an internship besides doing photocopying? Especially while in the process of doing the course.

    mr_fegelien thank you for your post. You don't appear to be looking for advice on an issue that is impacting you however, its more career advice.

    I see you've posted in the DCU forum already on this and that really is the best place for your thread. I'm therefore closing this one here.
