2 What are your responsibilities?
As a part-time editor, I am responsible for editing news related to current affairs as well as collecting information for the newspaper edition.
3 Why did you choose to do that type of work (or, that job)?
I guess it’s mainly because of job flexibility & my passion for journalism. To be more specific, this job is unlike the nine-to-five work schedule, enabling me to find a better balance between work and life. Besides, this job gives me opportunities to pursue my dream to become a journalist.
4 Is there some other kind of work you would rather do?
At present, I don’t think I’m able to dedicate myself to any other job. It’s the experiences and opportunities I can gain that matters to me.
5 Describe the company or organization you work for.
The Guardian is a national British daily newspaper which offers free access both to current news and an archive of three million stories. In April 2011, MediaWeek reported that The Guardian was the fifth most popular newspaper site in the world. I believe that the Guardian is the inspirational workplace for all people who dream of becoming a journalist.
6 Do you enjoy your work?
I do, most of the time. Contributing to the news production for a world-class newspaper gives me a sense of satisfaction and pride.
7 What do you like/dislike about your job?
Well, the perk of being a news editor is that you’ll surround yourself with exciting news daily. What I don’t like about this job is that I have to do a thousand edits to get to the final one that meets the requirement of my boss. Sometimes I feel a bit overloaded with tons of tasks.
8 (Possibly)Do you miss being a student?
I missed student life once I got involved in the workplace. I think when I was a student, I had someone to guide me, whereas at work you must guide yourself. The academic environment was a comfort zone, and I struggled to fit in the working environment.
