In my Publications class at IUP, we spent the semester creating a magazine for the journalism department called The Lede. I wrote a story called "Journalism Jobs: The Good, the Bad and the Unusual" about IUP journalism alumni who now have unusual jobs such as a religious sister, a cooking school owner and a restaurant owner. Although these might not seem like jobs for journalists, all three said that they use their journalism skills in their jobs today.
In addition to writing and designing the pages for my story in both the print and web version, I also worked as the Art Director. I designed artwork for others in the class to use for their stories in both the print and web version. As part of my job, I also designed the cover page for the print version.
