Deadline-driven staff with an atmosphere that nurtures creativity.
Assistant Editor in Chief of The Encounter (Current Employee) – Joliet, IL – November 2, 2014
This job has given me a taste of the proofreading/editing business and I love it. We release one, 42-page news magazine per month. This means that we have somewhat of a routine with meetings, deadlines, etc. From layout design to choosing stories, color choices to the creation of headlines, I love this job. However, the only thing that I find to be extremely challenging is the lack of communication between staff members. Often I am forced to work on the tightest deadlines due to a lack of communication between section editors and their writers. Though this can make my job more stressful than it needs to be, I really enjoy proofreading the content and formatting the text to fit in the layouts.
