Quite interested, but a current 2nd year student graduating in May.


dchampigny, I wish I could offer you the position, but I don't make the rules. Unfortunately, this is a requirement by PA Professional in order to pass the torch off from assistant editor to senior editor, as this is a technically a 2-year commitment. The first year, you are learning the editorial process with the help of your senior editor. The second year, you take over as senior editor and train a new assistant editor to replace yourself when you leave. I hope that this doesn't discourage you from submitting articles to First Rounds. We definitely could use great writers such as yourself to submit content for publication!
