Last spring, Karen Snyder applied for an internship with National Geographic but was not accepted. Little did she know that while the door closed on one opportunity, it opened on another.
Snyder was wished the best in her future and sent a piece of paper with the Web address Ed2010.com on it. She didn’t think much of it until she discovered that Ed2010 could be a way to improve the career prospects of West Virginia University P.I. Reed School of Journalism (SOJ) students interested in magazines.
