Copy Editor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 28 February 2018
The Globe and Mail was one of the only newsrooms in Canada that maintained a wall between sales and editorial. That may be changing now, but when I was there it was a great place to do pure journalism.

Client Solutions Specialist/Administrative (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 24 September 2013
The Globe and Mail has been Canada's national newspaper since 1844 -- the circulation department is a vital cog in the machine that creates high quality journalism daily. Our department very often cross-functions with the Sales/Marketing department as well as Logistics to ensure all bases are covered when it comes to consistently building our brand while managing the level of service Globe customers have come to expect.
The admin team in circ is a very small team and we are constanting putting out fires -- I love this and find it exciting because it keeps me on my toes. I am happiest when being challenged within my role and look for ways to grow constantly.
Very open communication with my supervisor/manager
