sarinsarin motivational sleeper PExer

    if not mistaken, they have the most titles..

    based from several visits.. almost 90% are female staffers :D

    i think they will be moving to their new office pretty soon, so useless to comment about working environment :p

    as for YES! if you like showbiz and chikahan.. am sure you will enjoy working for the magazine :)

    were you with other magazines before? or is this going to be your first job?
  • sarinsarin motivational sleeper PExer
    no, i haven't worked for magazines before, only local or in-house newsletters. and no, this isn't going to be my first job either, but it will be my first job related to publishing.

    by the way, do they pay well? :deal: :lol:

    ndi ba jg summit company sila?

    you can check this website -
  • Yes, Summit Publishing / Summit Interactive are part of or affiliated with the JG Summit (Gokongwei) conglomerate. I believe Lisa Gokongwei heads Summit Publishing.

    gokongwei? thanks for information. that helped a lot.

    anything else anybody would like to add? i'd really like to know more about the company/magazine. i already went to the website and checked it out. okay naman.

    I've read one issue of Yes and I liked it because it featured the interiors of the houses of celebrities like Christopher de Leon, Mel Tiangco, Che Che Lazaro, and other reputable personalities. The articles do not really delve on rumors. They discussed more on the interior design of the houses and a little background about the home owner, of course. And mind you, the background are the interesting ones; not the ones we read from tabloids. The overall theme was tastefully done.

    As for Summit Publishing, well, I can only go as far as saying that I have a friend who is a contributing writer in Good Housekeeping. She seems happy about her job and does not complain or air gripes about the company and her boss (Robina Gokongwei herself).

    In my opinion, since it's going to be your first publishing-related job, Summit will give you good training. Good luck!
  • sarinsarin motivational sleeper PExer
    thank you so much. that one helped a lot. personally, i was worried that i'd work for a showbiz magazine that was, well, you know ;)...the usual stuff that you see.

    thanks again. it's really very encouraging.

    anything else anyone?
