About me

A creative eye has driven me through a degree in Magazine Journalism and onto an MA in Visual Communication. Given the nature of both of these degrees, my valuable skill set is extremely diverse. Both levels of education required immense organisation, the capability to adapt and an ability to work under pressure. My friendly and approachable nature has proven a brilliant asset when working as a team and liaising with clients. Alongside both degrees and a full time job, I have maintained a high level of industry experience.

Work history

Currently

Editorial and fashion intern: Heat Magazine

Bauer Media

Jan 2012
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Internship
  • I entered the journalism industry with work experience at Heat, a globally renowned celebrity, lifestyle and gossip magazine. This took place over the course of six weeks during a period of two years due to the editorial assistant and fashion team inviting me to return on three separate occasions. Interning with both the editorial and fashion teams meant I learnt a range of skills and took on a variety of tasks. Some of these tasks were: attending fashion and celebrity photo-shoots, attending interviews, archiving and systemising online and physical files, sourcing and returning props and clothing for photo-shoots, writing for print and online, sourcing images and permission, following and composing social media posts, meeting sales reps and leasing with clients in person and over the telephone. ‘Emily was prompt and got stuck into every task she was given. This is the kind of attitude you need in such a competitive industry, it really made her stand out.’ – Lucie Cave, Heat Magazine
