WHAT OUR PREVIOUS INTERNS HAVE TO SAY…
My Internship at the AJ was extremely rewarding. It placed me at the centre of the architectural community. All the exhibitions, events and people I met allowed me to feel more up to date and informed on current events and news than ever. I worked on variety of projects researching, writing and designing including exciting new ones such as the AJ Buildings Library. The AJ team took me under their wing and were always willing to help.
Simon Meredith, Part I Architecture Graduate, Manchester School of Architecture
‘Interning at the AJ was a baptism of fire - in the best possible way. I immediately felt part of the team and after a very shorttime I was busy picture researching, writing news stories and being sent along to press conferences and exhibitions.I learned so much and couldn’t have asked for a more fulfilling placement.’
Jess Bowie, Graduate, City University Magazine Journalism course
‘My internship at the AJ was extremely fun and rewarding. It was a steep learning curve, but it was made easy and enjoyableby the people we worked with. The office was a great place to have my first experience of magazine work, with a variety of dayto day tasks and the chance to write both online and printed articles. Everyone was willing to help, and answer any questionsor discuss the merits of the terrible articles you’d read on the way to work.
It gave me a good chance to catch up on all the most recent developments in the architectural world (crucial for my course)and it was brilliant to be able to view London Design Week and London Fashion week from the inside.’
Ione Braddick, 3rd Year Architecture student, University of Cambridge
‘I found my four weeks spent at the AJ a really valuable experience. I really enjoyed the web-based work and found the research aspect of the job fascinating, especially the opportunity to go back through past issues of the AJ. Keeping up to date with news from the architectural world has also helped me on my course this year, as I am now more aware of current issuesthan prior to the internship.
I would really recommend the internship to anyone interested in architecture or journalism, as this gives you a fantastic insight into how both of these industries work.’
Emma Bass, 3rd year Architectural Studies student at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL
‘I thoroughly enjoyed my tenure at the AJ, everyone there is so down to earth, easy going and friendly - taking you on under their wing. It’s a different environment entirely working in the media, considering my architectural background. Nonetheless, I found this experience invaluable; the articles, the constant update with the things developing in the architectural field, the exhibits, the events, the parties.’
