You’ve put your Journalism, English or other relevant degree to good use with at least one year of experience working at a newspaper, magazine or digital publication. You have at least 1-2 years of experience working directly with History and Social Studies content, and you have a spidey-sense for when a topic you’re less familiar with might be oversimplified or might require some additional fact-checking or research.
