Due to circumstances ultimately beyond my control, I have landed an amazing job as a web producer at the Center for Investigative Reporting in Berkeley.
Before you chide me for being too humble, I believe that getting hired required four things:
- Right time
- Right place
- Right skill set
- Right connections
I did all I could for the last two, and the first two happened to fall into place.
I’ve been on the job for more than a month, and I couldn’t be happier. I’m working with an incredible crew, including past (and future) Pulitzer Prize winners. I work extensively on CIR’s biggest project, California Watch. For all of CIR’s sites, I’m posting stories, coordinating reporters and tech people, planning some redesigns and fixing bugs in the look and feel of the sites.
