Journal Five

One other thing I’ve been learning at my internship is how the publishing industry works, since part of what Mission Magazine does is publish a magazine twice a year, I get to hear about the owner going back and forth to different locations, to negotiate, network, and so on. Since we’re in the same room as a business major I often overhear what she’s doing which usually has a lot to do with that.

It especially becomes apparent when, because of my work largely being on the social media end, and the work can be rushed since right now we have to get content out in anticipation for their next issue. It helps me to understand how print, which can often seem like such a slow industry from the outside, is actually pretty fast paced, and to do well, I learned it takes good time management and being able to work well under pressure.
