    Copy Editor for student newspaper, The Sower

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Concordia University

    Pros

    I never thought I would enjoy journalism before I worked for The Sower! While on staff for the past five semesters, I have improved my own writing style, and I have been encouraged to learn how to find and hold pleasant conversation with complete strangers. As Copy Editor, I have branched out and worked with other writers' articles.

    Cons

    Not many hours are offered for journalists on the newspaper staff, only about 4-6 per week, but sometimes with school work that's about all I could manage anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to advertise more for other students to be on staff. It's fun, and a great experience, and it builds confidence; we need to show the student body that being a part of the Sower is beneficial in so many ways!
