A Day In The Life - Jake at AOL

Jake T.
Intern - AOL Jobs

Hey there! I'm interning with AOL this summer as part of the Jobs team. My day-to-day entails a lot of social media interaction and promotion, as well as copy editing, web editing, and search engine optimization. I will be a senior in the fall, earning my degree in Media Arts & Design with a minor in Writing and Rhetoric from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA.

Outside of school and work, I'm a car nut who is heavily involved in various forms of motorsports. I dabble in photography, print & web design, and keep up on daily gadget news & developments.

Follow me on Twitter to see what a day in the life of an AOL Intern is really like!

A Day In The Life with Jake

Hey there! I'm Jake, with AOL Jobs. I'll be tweeting throughout the day about what I do. Check http://bit.ly/DILjake for more.

Compiling and organizing entries for our iPad giveaway - have you entered? Prioritizing the rest of my day.

Editing HTML and content of soon-to-be-posted articles for our site... and rocking out on GrooveShark too.

For the record, Word produces some excess HTML. Some. http://ow.ly/i/2zjz

Lunchtime! http://ow.ly/i/2zq8

Back to work - music in restroom: Hey Soul Sister by Train. This apparently ends last week's 80s kick. Slightly disappointed.

So glad that SMAD and @bencarr taught me about proper HTML, CSS, deprecated tags, etc. Makes life so much easier!

Creating landing pages for the other interns' day in the life pages - although the Twitter search widget isn't searching. Hrmph.

These DIL tweets aren't showing up in Twitter search and therefore, not on our AOL landing page. Twouble ticket sent to Twitter!

We're in the process of redesigning 'jobs.aol.com' - visit the current site and take the survey; we'd appreciate the feedback.

Heading home! Sorry for any rough spots today. Follow Maryam from the AOL mail team tomorrow, bright & early!
