Joshua Sullivan is a graduate student in Northeastern University’s School of Journalism, and is currently on co-op as a researcher for the WGBH media critique show Beat the Press. In this position, his main responsibility is to make sure no stone is left unturned in the package as his team works together to compile several stories about media coverage each week. He works on gathering research notes and searches for video clips and other media that pertain to the topic that week. Given that his role has now moved online, we caught up with Joshua to check in on his CAMD co-op gone digital!
How has your co-op changed since it’s moved online? Have your responsibilities shifted?
What digital tools is your co-op company using to keep everyone productive and on-the-same-page?
Nothing crazy here, just G-Mail and Google Docs. Our team members are often going in several different directions at once, so that part of communication hasn’t changed since going remote.
Has there been anything unexpected for you as you transitioned your role online?
During this difficult time, how are you staying motivated and inspired?
“Media outlets will continue to put out good journalism and bad journalism, and it’s our show’s job to hold everyone accountable.”
