Happy New Year!
This week, I start as National Journal’s social media intern, where I will work to expand the reach of content on the recently relaunched NationalJournal.com through social media.I’m really excited to start a job that presents some very unique challenges and opportunities. National Journal is a well-known and well-respected brand inside the Beltway, but only dropped its online paywall in late October. In a way, the online brand has to be built from scratch.I’m very fortunate to be reporting to David Beard, who most recently ran Boston.com. I’ve been working on some ideas for the past few weeks and I can’t wait to try them in a production environment!
