Great community interaction and ability to manage time as best suits what I must get done.
Newspaper Writer (Current Employee) – Western Pennsylvania – July 10, 2014
Prepare for phone interviews, hit the streets to talk to people, attend events and sit and write. I learn a ton about the community, the people in it and what is happening. I also learn that I have to take into account my editor's schedule, as well, and try to get things into her as quickly as I can to make her life a lot better.
great editor, can manage my own time, get to attend events and meet people and i get to write. perfect.
can't control deadlines and sometimes people aren't so willing to speak to you about certain topics, but you have to get used to that and adjust accordingly.
