This summer, Alexandra Asselta ’19 had the opportunity to experience the publishing world in New York City through her editorial internship with beauty and lifestyle magazine Redbook, a Hearst Corporation publication with a circulation of over 2 million. The Spanish and communication double major utilized Knowlton Center’s Handshake program to find and apply to the job. The career center also awarded Asselta a stipend to make the experience possible.
Redbook's articles are primarily targeted towards married women. The magazine features stories about women dealing with modern hardships, aspiring for intellectual growth, and encouraging other women to work together for humanitarian causes. The magazine profiles successful women to provide inspirational testimonies and advice on life.
