James learns the ropes
LAST week the team at The Express had the pleasure of teaching the ins and outs of the newspaper world to Mareeba State High School work experience student, James Dickinson.
James learned all there is to know about working in a newspaper including administration, advertising, classifieds, layout, photos, videos, drone piloting and journalism.
“I have enjoyed my time at the paper, it was a good learning experience,” he said.
“I expected I would be doing some of the things I was but there were aspects of the job that were unexpected like being behind the scenes and learning how the paper was run.
“It has been an interesting experience to see what being a journalist is really like.”
It was a joy to have James on-board and to show him what we do in our day to day operations
