Hey,

Sixth Form at my school have been allocated 1 week for work experience - I need your help / advice / opinions!

I have applied for work experience in the local newspaper office, they have given me a 2 day placement. I have also applied for another newspaper office, they have granted me a 3 day placement, so that would be my full week complete.

Does this sound like a good idea, to get a full weeks newspaper office experience or should I seek a placement in another area of work for the additional 3 days?

(I'm interested in travel and media)

Thanks for your time,
Scott

If you are interested in that area then it makes sense to spend the week there. The fact you are going to two different offices if probably a good thing as it will give you a wider range of experiences to draw upon.
Remember that just because you only have 1 week for work experience during school time it doesn't mean that is all you can do. You could always try and organise some for your summer or easter holidays.
If you enjoy these placements make some contacts. That way you can always call/email and ask if you could go back for a few days
