Crain’s Detroit Business
After first joining Crain’s Detroit Business as an intern in 2007, Kim Waatti started a full-time position at the publication after graduating from college. She’s been at Crain ever since working for various publications; even when one of the brands Kim was working at closed, she was able to transfer to another job within Crain.
One of the many reasons Kim has stayed at Crain is because of the support and multiple growth opportunities. “At Crain, my direct supervisors have always been very supportive of my growth,” Kim said, even when it meant allowing her to transfer to another brand. “I’ve seen that across the board here at Crain; it takes a strong leader to allow their strongest assets to move to another opportunity for their own personal growth.”
The high value that Crain places on each employee is another draw for Kim. “Even when I was just a young intern, my voice was heard at the table. You don’t need to be on the top rungs of the ladder to be heard around here.”
Valerie met the editor of Modern Healthcare at a health care journalists’ forum while she was getting her master’s degree — she forwarded him a resume after she graduated when an internship role opened up in the editorial department. She has been working at Crain since January 2017, but said it already feels like home.
From the beginning, Valerie found that her internship was completely hands-on and intensive. “I get to write, edit and participate in the production process, as well as assist in research tasks. The longer I work here, the more I learn and the more I am given to do.” She also said she appreciates the competitive pay, which allows her to fully invest in the experience without worrying about money.
“I have learned so much about magazine production and health care in the last few months and in an environment where I always feel supported and encouraged,” Valerie said. “I work very closely with the editors, and it has helped me to understand some of the bigger-level decisions made in the production of the magazine that reporters are often removed from.” For Valerie, her internship is the perfect entry into the world of serious print journalism.
Crain Communications – New York
Evolving with the changes in technology is a must for a leading media company like Crain. Fortunately, there are people like Simone Pryce on our team who continually push our processes forward.
Since joining Crain as a prepress specialist in 1999, Simone has been able to fuse her passions for technology and production to revolutionize our digital pre-press department.
As the media industry expanded digitally, Simone seized the opportunity for her team to evolve. She took the initiative to master a new skill set, studying after hours for weeks to prepare a system that has shaped the way Crain does business. As the creator of this plan, Simone was ultimately promoted to a director role overseeing both prepress and production for Crain’s NYC office.
“Crain has provided an opportunity to grow instead of being stifled. The atmosphere has allowed me to advance and continue to learn.”
