IF you are still not convinced, here are some reasons we have come up with as to why this series is great to get involved in!:
- GET TO KNOW PURPLE RADIO: Have you been considering joining for while? Or maybe not at all – either way, this discounted membership gives you the chance to get involved with all aspects of radio while you are away, and will look great on your CV (and we are friendly society who would love to have you!)
- SHARE IDEAS AND ADVICE: Anyone who has been/is going through the process understands how confusing and sometimes stressful the application process for a year abroad can be, and this series is a chance to help everyone else soon to go through it as well as to meet other people in a similar situation
- GAIN EXPERIENCE in the process of creating a podcast, in radio production, learning how to use the technology, and in journalism
and last but not least…
- KEEP A RECORD of your experiences while abroad – memories you will have forever to look back on, and which you can share with friends & family
We really hope this series can help to inform and inspire people to take the opportunity of a Year Abroad if possible – and if not, we hope we can share some interesting stories from around the world and take our Purple Radio family international!
