Building Skills for a Future in Editing

As the Communications Intern for the Office of Student Employment, I have gained many transferable skills related to my future career of being an editor for a publishing house. In my role, I have executed and managed a new student newsletter, maintained three websites, been a mentor in the Hire Achievers Program, managed the online document review process for our office, and more. In this showcase specifically, I will focus on how I have grown in writing, editing, and oral communication with a comparison to the skills necessary for a career in editing by using O*NET as a foundation.
