Great People Work Here
To showcase the variety of career opportunities available at News Link, we’re featuring a few employees and their respective jobs. If there is one unifying quality among them, it’s that they all strive for greatness in everything they do.
EDUCATION: Bachelor of Science in Journalism and Mass Communications, Kansas State University
EXPERIENCE: I joined News Link in 2011 as a corporate journalist. Before coming to News Link, I worked as a writer and editor for a couple KSU publications. I also interned for the Cooperative Communicators Association and was a freelance writer for Manhattan Magazine.
CURRENT JOB DESCRIPTION: I travel throughout California to interview people, write stories and obtain photos for various publications.
OBSERVATIONS: Clients rely on News Link as their source of communication. We keep them updated on the happenings in their company and community. Our publications help co-workers connect with one another.
BEYOND 9 TO 5: I spend my time writing, reading and running.
EDUCATION: Bachelor of Journalism, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
EXPERIENCE: I started designing for News Link in March 2010 and took on the BNSF liaison role about a year later.
CURRENT JOB DESCRIPTION: I make things look pretty. I’m part of a team that tackles the design of newsletters, posters, brochures and everything in between. As the BNSF liaison, I work with corporate communications to ensure we are in sync with their goals and directives.
OBSERVATIONS: News Link gives me the freedom to expand my creativity, try new ideas and grow as a designer.
BEYOND 9 TO 5: Since I play softball on the News Link D-league team, all of my spare time is devoted to training drills, building muscle mass and increasing my stamina–so I can lead the team to victory! I am confident that we will win a game one of these days.
EDUCATION: Bachelor of Arts, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
EXPERIENCE: I joined News Link in 2005 as a corporate journalist and have worked with clients from New Orleans to Seattle — and just about everywhere in between — to help them establish an environment of camaraderie and safe working habits. I now apply my field experience to my duties as one of News Link’s editors.
CURRENT JOB DESCRIPTION: I ensure the copy of nearly 200 publications is not only grammatically sound, but also conforms to our clients’ individual specifications. Training also is an important aspect of my job. I work with our new employees to ensure the content meets the high level of quality to which our clients are accustomed.
OBSERVATIONS: Many of our clients work in an industry in which safety is the highest priority, and I’ve heard the phrase “I work safely so I can go home to my family at the end of the day” more times than I can count. It’s a good feeling knowing the publications I help produce help them get there.
I always considered my work travels an opportunity, not an obligation — there are few lines of work that would’ve allowed me to jet off to the Pacific Northwest one week and the Arizona desert the next.
BEYOND 9 TO 5: When I’m not playing soccer in a local league, I can be found bicycling on one of eastern Nebraska’s many trails or manning my charcoal grill.
