My fellowship experience:
Working under the guidance of both the marketing and editorial departments gave me a little bit broader view of what actually goes into making publishing work, and I have to say, the marketing side pulled me more than I expected. The experience of working in a professional environment with passionate employees surrounding me has definitely sparked more of my interest in business and I am glad to be pursuing a degree in this field in preparation for life after graduation.
