EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J. - Looks like my stay at Dow Jones will be going on a little while longer!
Yesterday I had my second interview with the lady at the monitor desk in The Wall Street Journal's South Brunswick office, and basically she offered me a job at the desk for the fall with the understanding that I would be getting internship credit for it through Rutgers. Naturally, I took it.
I'm going to start the week after next, on Monday, Aug. 27. I will be working five days a week, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (although I'm told that may change later in the semester). Again, this is mostly proofreading and such, so it's not quite as involved as copy editing, but it includes certain aspects. And yes, I will be getting paid---not as much as I did as a copy-editing intern, but hey, $16 or so an hour is still pretty damn good pay, I'd say, even in a part-time position.
And that's pretty much all I have to say about that.
