Intern

NUVO

Through my high school's internship program, I became a Nuvo-intern. Working primarily in the music department, I helped some of the employees post articles online, using simple HTML. As is an intern's wont, I completed odd jobs throughout the process. I wrote some miscellaneous posts for the actual paper, but I primarily wrote album reviews for the website. This experience was great because my reviews were published on the website under my name. Even though the articles weren't extremely important to Nuvo, the experience offered me a great deal of insight into the world of print and digital journalism.
