This Internship is Already Teaching Me So Much

Well, I’m a couple weeks into my internship at Robot Butt, and I can’t believe how much I’m already learning. Turns out the real world is a whole lot faster than my life at Purdue (but I dig it). More than anything, it’s showing me just how far I still have to go to be the kind of professional I really want to be. That’s a good thing, too. If I’m going to be a diligent reporter, I need a wake-up...

Journalism is About Research

One of the things I’ve been learning here at Robot Butt is that good journalism depends first and foremost on good research. As an intern here, I get the chance to write a couple of articles for the site, and for my first official Robot Butt article, I decided to cover the history of¬†the Robot Butt robot – the logo and the statue in the lobby. I haven’t officially pitched the idea yet, but I think the management here...
