My placement at the Globe and Mail was probably the best-case scenario for my internship. I was an editorial intern, and it’s a true working internship; you’re assigned the same tasks as backdesk editors and held to the same standards. There was great support from the senior editors and the slots (who assign articles to be edited). I was always free to ask questions.
My day was usually spent editing articles for clarity and content, so when there wasn’t much content to go through it could get a little slow. I also had the chance to write a few published “Moment in Time” segments. I enhanced my editing skills a great deal at the Globe, I’m now able to edit and find errors much faster and know how to adjust my writing to make it as clear as possible.
