Pros: competitive, stretching, exercised writing skills
Cons: low compensation, unmotivated staff
I gained a lot of experience as the Editor-in-Chief of my college newspaper. I was thrown into the position with no experience at all and had a lot to learn. It was rocky at first as I was a freshman in college with new journalism experience but I am a competitive person and I like a challenge. I was responsible for managing and organizing all editors, writers, photographers, and advertisement partners. I also wrote my own stories, handled press releases, edited everyone else's stories, did all paper layout, and many other things.
