Internship opportunities are your way into any industry. Even if you belong to some other industry, it wouldn’t really matter because you are not supposed to know any hard facts related to it. This is a position that solely focuses on teaching you the requirements of the job. Once you complete the internship duration, you can continue as a full-time worker or switch to other companies. The most recent opportunities are by PTV and the Digital Media Wing of the Government of Pakistan.
PTV & its achievements
Pakistan Television Corporation (PTV), in the past, has seen some dark days. With the advent of the new channels, its popularity went down as well. However, we need to understand that it still has the most reach, even to the corners of the country most other cable channels cannot get to. Plus, in recent developments, PTV is even initiating HD broadcast of its channel. This will be a significant step in dealing with criticisms against it.
