Summary of Internship

As an editorial intern, I primarily work with magazine editors. Every Thursday, I am relegated a series of tasks ranging from sorting mail and transcribing interviews to pulling photos and brainstorming relevant social media posts. Each week presented me with new responsibilities and each Thursday was different from the last. In 2017, the publishing industry remains successful due in part to its flexibility over various media outlets. I not only got ample experience working on printed issues of magazines, but also several web resources. Because I was often expected to use technology specific to the publishing industry, I learned how to employ a company-wide server as well as programs such as InDesign and Censhare. Over the course of my internship, I gained invaluable experience regarding collaboration and communication and general knowledge necessary if I intend to pursue a career in media or publishing.
