This past three-and-a-half weeks has been an education. There is so much to share. The most important lesson: if you are a writer and are in school working for a degree – and if you ever think you will need a writing/editing job with a company – go get one now! I’ve looked at hundreds of jobs over this past three weeks – spending four to six hours a day. All most all of the positions want up to five years’ experience, and that is with your degree. A few will take only the experience. The experience is the important issue. So, find a part-time freelancing job in the discipline you are writing for; whether you intern, freelance, or go permanent it is important to get the ball rolling and get your experience early on.
