On Wednesday 24 April on the UniSA City West Campus many students were going about their normal day, but for some South Australian high school students it was not a typical day. After receiving over 200 applications for a Work Experience opportunity that Adelaide teen magazine, ME Magazine put on, 23 talented students were chosen to undertake various roles in publishing for a photo shoot. Aspiring models, photographers, fashion stylists, journalists, graphic designers, videographers and public relations students were included in the group.
The dedicated students spent a whole day working within their area under the supervision of mentors, all UniSA graduates or academics, so each student could gain further experience and information within their area of interest.
Everything was executed at a high standard and well mannered, everyone got along and each student felt as if they were walking away with experience you can’t buy. Make sure you check out the full rundown and photos from the day in the July issue of ME Magazine.

“After the Careers in Publishing day had come to an end, I found myself smiling and from what I’ve heard from the other participants in regards to that day, everybody enjoyed the day and got along extremely well. It was an experience that I’ll never forget, and hopefully one that will help all who participated in our future careers in publishing.”

It was great to hear that most students wanted to continue in their chosen field and everyone was extremely happy with the final product of the day. As a student journalist, it was a pleasure to speak with all the students and to hear how dedicated and passionate they were.
