    Hi, I am interested in getting work experience or a job this summer in either Birmingham or London. I would quite like work experience at a newspaper or in broadcasting, has anyone done this before and if so, can you offer me advice on when and where to find opportunities?

    Have you looked at this? Might be helpful as a starting point although unfortunately for those sorts of areas it's a lot about who you know in terms of getting any experience - if you have a personal connection anywhere that's also a good place to start! http://www.bbc.co.uk/careers/work-experience/

    Hey

    Perhaps you could contact some local newspapers. The Bham Metro? And i have a media side to me as i'm studying Media Studies A level and have always wanted to do a work placement /experience at one of the major radio stations on Broad Street Bham. I've never got round to contacting them but i think that'd be a good start.

    And the BBC site you've provided unfortunately doesn"t do much for Birmingham placements. I joined the site almost 3 years ago and 'til this day have never managed to be informed of any placements. Nonetheless, you advice is good about getting hold of a contant on the inside.

    Its not much but hope this helped
