Business Manager

Bison Newspaper

As the Business Manager of the Bison, I get to interact with Searcy locals. I work with Searcy businesses who are interested in advertising in the Bison newspaper. We design an ad for the business, complete a contract and place the ad all for an affordable fee. I have been the Business Manager for 1 year now.

Skills

layout design/ writing
Layout and design are both a passion. I am skilled at creating visuals that are appealing to the eye and that get the main point across. I work well with InDesign, Adobe, and Photoshop on the Mac as well as Publisher, Paint board, and Word on a PC.    Writing is a skill that is continuously improved. I have learned how to write feature stories, news stories, entertainments articles and more. Whether I am typing or am limited to pencil and paper, I always enjoy the art and skill of creating a story. 

Inside look-about me

Apart from writing news stories and designing, I dabble in creative writing. I keep a journal. I enjoy creating poems. On a different not, I also enjoy most outdoor activities. I am a sporty individual. Basketball, track, hiking, rock climbing and things of that nature. 

Objective

As a journalist, I plan to end up either exercising my skill or teaching others how to properly enjoy the art of reporting and writing. 

I want to work in a place where I can have the best of both worlds; advertising and journalism. Designing brochures, ads, layout, and similar things are what make me happy.  Having both fields in one office would be icing on the cake for me.
