Summer Job: Web Editor at Eskilstuna-Kuriren

So, I’ve got a summer job at Eskilstuna-Kuriren as their web editor. It’s just perfect really. The only thing that could be improved would be the location. If I had the same job in Uppsala, I would be seriously happy. Jenny would be even happier.

Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the whole news desk is using Firefox on the macs they have there. Saves me the trouble of installing Portable Firefox on the desktop, like I had to do at UNT where I did work experience in December. When I think about it though, I’m not sure Portable Firefox works on macs.

I’ve gotten into the job quicker than I thought. The plan is for me to work along side Jörgen until June, when I’ll be replacing him for the summer. But yesterday they told me I’ll be on my own as early as Wednesday. 😐 So I’m a bit nervous about that…

Anyway, it’s a great place. Everyone is very friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed. Today I handed in my application for a full time job at the web desk. In August they are expanding from one to six full time web reporters. Quite an expansion. Hopefully, me and a few of my class mates from Sundsvall will be part of that expansion.
