“Real” Meetings

11 Jul

I’m an Editorial Intern at a publishing company for the summer, and today at work I was invited by boss to sit in a status meeting. Obviously I jumped at the chance to:  1. Leave my cube, 2. Take a break from projects, and, of course, 3. See a little bit of the “real publishing work” my boss said would be going on. At the meeting, I just sat back and watched… and it reminded exactly of any Golub House Council or Concordy meeting. It was the same format, with the same tones and updates from each of person in the room.  Granted, these updates were about accounts and dates with acronym labels that I don’t understand, definitely not about the schedule for Golub’s Oktoberfest or the next Thursday issue of the Concordiensis. Still, it was cool to feel a little more comfortable knowing that the meetings about “real publishing work” aren’t all that different from my meetings here at Union.  Well, minus the conference calls and suits, of course.
