"This summer I was given the opportunity to work as an intern at Meredith Corporation in Des Moines. Meredith is the leading media and marketing company serving American women. They also have many well-known national brands and multiple distribution platforms including print, television, online, mobile, tablets, and video. As a journalism major with an emphasis in magazine I am extremely fortunate to be working for several of Meredith's magazines this summer in their Crafts Group, including American Patchwork & Quilting, Quilts and More, Quilt Sampler, and Make It Yourself. Through this internship I have gained experience with writing, copy editing, social media, and even some modeling for a couple of the magazines. One of my favorite responsibilities is controlling the Twitter accounts for American Patchwork & Quilting and Quilts and More. There are three tweets posted a day and I write them and then schedule when they will be posted. This internship has really helped me to see what my future will be like if I work for a magazine someday, and I now understand the process it takes to make and publish a magazine. Working for Meredith is easily the best job I have ever had and I cannot wait to find out where this experience will take me in the future."
