Skills

Editing
All of my journalism classes involved with editing, and I believe I have a good amount of experience.  JRNL102 (Basic Journalism Skills), JRNL220 (Writing for Print Media), JRNL337 (Editing), and JRNL328 (News Reporting) are a few that dealt with editing in depth.
Interviewing
I've had to conduct interviews for projects at IUP.  Including Rachel Pugh, the general manager of The Weekender, a Northeastern Pa based entertainment weekly and Scott Gibson, the head of Health Services at IUP. I've conducted many interviews for my column in the school's newspaper.  Often in a "man on the street" fashion, where I would just ask students their opinions or ask for stories they'd be willing to share based on the topic of that week's column.
HTML
I have experience with customizing websites.  I'm currently learning to do more.
