Dream Job? I Think So!

Interview About Being a Primedia Truck Group Web Producer

What do I think about my job as Web Producer for Sport Truck? Here's what I said in a brief informal interview with www.askpatty.com. Months later, I still feel the same way!



ASK PATTY: Can you tell me a little bit about your job working with the Truck magazines at Primedia?

Monica: The bottom line is that it’s a dream come true. Years ago, I used to think it over in my head, but always came to the conclusion that something like that could never happen to someone like me. I guess I was at the right place at the right time, and I’m excited to see where it takes me. There is so much I want to do, but only so many hours in a day, and I really don’t want to get burned out. My main concern working with the Truck Group is that I don’t want my passion, my hobby, to turn into “just a job,” or become burdensome. I want to always stay enthusiastic and passionate. I have no background in “Web Stuff.” I went to school for Criminology and Social Ecology. However, I am really enjoying this fresh experience in the fun, energetic world of website production. I like that at the end of the day, work becomes visible in the form of a website, which others can then enjoy (or at least give me feedback on). The ability to make changes that I think viewers would like is really exciting. Sometimes a task will be tedious, but knowing that the viewers are going to dig it really makes a difference. How do I know if they’ll dig it? Because I am truly just an average, regular mini trucker, who loves shows and hanging out, and who tries not to get busted by cops for vehicle modifications. My truck breaks down just like the others, and my adventure with trucks started when I was 16, just like many others. I’ve looked at these Primedia publications for years, just like everyone else. To be on the “other side” is truly an amazing experience that I certainly do not take for granted.
