Class of 2005
Associate Editor / Label and Narrow Web Magazine
typical day: I write articles for Label and Narrow Web, a trade magazine covering the labeling industry. When I'm not writing articles, I'm laying out pages in Quark XPress, writing up new product and people items, and converting pictures to the proper format in Adobe Photoshop. I occasionally travel for various industry events. I enjoy my position. It's actually very similar to the work I did for The Muhlenberg Weekly as News Editor. That experience definitely prepared me for my current job and was extremely influential in my boss's decision to hire me. The publishing house I work for is Rodman Publishing located in Ramsey, NJ. The company publishes 11 trade magazines.

exciting news: After graduation I interned in New York City at Lebar-Friedman, a publishing company that put out a number of magazines. I was an intern for Chain Store Age, a magazine that covers the retail industry. Since I was only working there part-time, I also wrote articles for a local newspaper in my area, The Pascack Press. I started at my first full time job August 29.
