Corporate Journalist (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – August 13, 2013
Each day starts with a briefing on writing, AP style and tips on news gathering. As a corporate journalist, I travel every month to gather news for certain clients for their company newsletter. Management is always available when needed. The atmosphere is always positive, uplifting and goal oriented. Co-workers are very helpful as we all work towards the same goals. The hardest part of the job is traveling. Being on the road for a minimum of nine days out of each month can be difficult. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing your work appear in a client's newsletter. What's even more enjoyable is seeing the client happy with a finished newsletter and inviting you back to their company to write the next edition.
close proximity, quiet atmosphere, productivity driven.
extensive traveling, quick deadlines, and daily meetings.
