The Mass Media Newspaper is a Fantastic place to work!
Sports Editor (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – May 15, 2017
The newspaper that I worked at throughout my college years was the best possible job that I could have asked for. It allowed me to gain some management and office experience, while also giving me flexible hours. I highly recommend it to any student at UMass Boston.
Photographer, The Santa Clara (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – April 13, 2017
The Santa Clara is the Santa Clara University's student run newspaper. As a photographer, I receive assignments of events that are happening on campus and that I need to go shoot. We all meet once a week, where we discuss the previous week's newspaper and the photographs that were ran. There are two faculty advisors, who are photojournalists and they teach us the tricks of the trade.

Accounting Analyst (Former Employee) – Panama City, FL – June 7, 2016
Work environment was boring. Mainly revolved around remotely coaching bookkeepers at Newspaper locations in correctly recording financial information. All co-workers were at remote locations, but were easy to work with.
VIEWPOINT PUBLIC RELATIONS intern (Former Employee) – Beverly Hills, CA – June 17, 2014

Editor in Chief (Former Employee) – Canton, MO – February 15, 2014
I worked my way from just a reporter to Features Editor to Editor in Chief while spending my 4 years at Culver-Stockton College. The paper was bi-weekly and didn't require too much time to perform the tasks I needed to do since I was also studying and working on many other classes at the same time.
loved to talk to people and interact. I loved this job because I was always on my feet moving around I believe that you get paid by how you do your job. I was put with nice friendly people who were motivated to better their lives for their family, children and themselves like I am.

walking in 100 degree weather for hours at a time- no complaints.
A cast of many characters - despite the hard work we managed to have a few laughs in between.
Ad Taker/Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 22, 2013
A TYPICAL DEADLINE DAY: Heavy customer service and typing!!!!! Tons of emails and faxes not to mention walk-ins. Entering ads from the sales reps. Dealing with the production department. At the end of the day you had to generate reports and process the payments you received from customers. You felt like you were on roller skates and when you left to go home you felt like a zombie.
A TYPICAL DAY AFTER DEADLINE: Less hectic except you had to proofread the layouts and resend copy to the production dept.
MID WEEK: You got to relax a little. The newspaper was delivered.
END OF WEEK: More deadlines but not as hectic as the beginning of the week. Just a lot of typing of Announcements.
WHAT I LEARNED? To be a team player. Everybody's role is valuable!!
THE HARDEST PART OF THE JOB: Running the department by myself when my supervisor was on vacation. At one point we had 3 people in the department then the 3rd ad taker left and management didn't want to rehire someone.
THE MOST ENJOYABLE PART OF THE JOB: Knowing that you did a good days work and feeling proud of yourself for all that you accomplished.
