Since May 2001, I have served as a student aide at Temple University's Paley Library, doing everything from shelving, stamping and stripping monographs and serials, to handling library materials which need to be repaired. Click here to visit the Temple University Libraries homepage.
I have also worked as an intern with Review Publishing at the South Philadelphia Review and Southwest Philadelphia Review weekly newspapers since May 2002. This job has given me the opportunity to write news, sports and features articles, and take an occasional photo, among other things. This is a popular place for aspiring journalists at Temple University to work at - four out of five of the newspapers' current interns are Temple Owls.

For the last year, I have held a job with KFFL, a sports-oriented website which offers baseball, football and fantasy sports news to its readers. The best part about the job is that I can work exclusively from home - all I have to do is gather information for the KFFL website from various other sites. My position is called "Hot Off the Wire Analyst," and I work exclusively with the NFL portion of the website. At one point during the summer, it was not uncommon for me to work three hours or more each night for them, seven days a week. Currently, I work the evening shift on KFFL on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Click here to visit KFFL.
