Work Placement Diary
RCS: Customer Services, Traffic Support – Sydney
My name is Daniel I live in Sydney and I would be interested in doing an internship with you for my TAFE course.
I have had experience working in a Radio station as I have done volunteer work at “Triple H” a community radio station in Waitara and have done a few courses in radio and screen and media. So I believe I would make a good addition to your team. The skills I have obtained from these courses is sound editing, panel operating, voice over, interview skills and announcing skills.
My classmates and teachers say that I’m easy to work with, that I’m reliable, I have a good work ethic, and speak up when I need to. I’m also knowledgeable about certain subjects that others might not know about, including anime, manga and Japan. In my studies, I give everything a go, and work hard to improve my performance.
I want to get more experience in this area of media and entertainment and I would like to be part of a team and I would bring an upbeat atmosphere if you were to choose me for this job.
My contact info are 0488 326 012 for Mobile and firstname.lastname@example.org for email.

I would like to apply for the announcer job at your radio station. I have been taking courses in radio and have had experience working at a local radio station called Triple H Radio. I believe that I could draw people into listening to shows since my teachers and classmates have told me that I put enough energy that I can get people to want to listen to what I say. I’m an organised person and also a hard worker and I’m able to work in a fast pace environment. I want to be able to tell news to people as soon as it was possible but only if it’s truthful news. I am also capable with working in a team environment and I’m good at working with people.
The radio station I do volunteer work at Triple H Radio, I used to panel for a show called “Mind4Life” which focused on giving health advice both physical and mental to people. I have been doing courses in radio for around two years at TAFE and a course at 2rrr a local radio station near where I live.
My philosophy for radio is that there is lots of opportunities in it and that you can tell people lots of things news since you can listen to radio almost anywhere.

These were the cover letters I had prepared for the job applications I applied for but was unable to get into. The organisations I tried contacting were unable to hire me since I didn’t have enough experience for them or they had already found someone else who was more qualified for the job. But I did get a valuable lesson from this assessment which is try to get the cover letters to them early before you run out of time and someone else gets the job or work experience before you.
So while I was unable to apply for the places I attempted to apply for I at least learn to be more prepared and not to worry endlessly. But I am also still doing volunteer work at Triple H Radio at Waitara so I understand most of what goes on at a radio station. So that is what I learnt from this assessment.
