An Internship with E-Publishing Companies: InformIT.com and Macmillan Publishing
Abstract (Summary)This report presents an account of a graduate internship that was completed in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Master of Technical and Scientific Communication degree from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio. I performed this internship with two major e-publishing companies based in Indianapolis, Indiana, from March 20 to July 10, 2000. In this report, I discuss my work as a Web Technical Writer/Editor at InformIT.com and Macmillan Publishing. I provide an overview of the various projects and activities I performed and the time commitments I gave to these projects and activities. I also discuss in detail the procedures I conducted to accomplish one major project. I conclude the report with a review of the Problem Solving Model and a reflection of the connection between what I learned in the MTSC program at Miami University and my practice as a Web Technical Writer/Editor in the publishing industry.
