Providing students with the hands-on experience they need to excel in their prospective fields is of utmost importance in BlueCrest College. Hence, we find it important to help our students get internship opportunities in companies that’ll help shape their future and give them the knowledge they need to stand out wherever they go.
In January, some of our students from the Mass Communication and Journalism department were privileged to serve as interns at the Ghana News Agency and New Times Corporation, and they have expressed their excitement in being given this opportunity to learn and be on the field as journalists.
Esther Yayra Elewokor, Ruth Asamoah and Godslove Kemeyo who were part of the interns shared their thoughts with us. “This internship has taught us a lot. We’ve learned journalism goes beyond being on TV, and involves a lot of work. News is everywhere and you just have to pay attention and look critically. How you tackle every news story is very important and every news has its flow so it’s essential to work with that flow to be able to get the right message across. Our studies from BlueCrest College helped us adjust to the corporate world quite smoothly which really helped us”. The interns from BlueCrest also expressed excitement in having some of their stories published (check links below to read their stories).
The editors of the New Times Corporation and Ghana News Agency expressed their satisfaction with the performance of BlueCrest students on internship with the news organizations. The Spectator Editor, Mr. Emmanuel Amponsah stated that the BlueCrest students were doing extremely well and described them as being serious with their work, and providing content regularly. Mr. Anthony Bells Kafui Kanyi, a news editor at the Ghana News Agency said he was highly impressed by the BlueCrest interns there, and their willingness to learn.
We’re very proud of our students and we’ll like to congratulate them on having their stories published. Kindly view the links below to read their articles.
