After finishing his Political Science and Government studies and obtaining his Bachelor’s Degree from the State University of New Jersey-New Brunswick, Joel Landau began his professional career as a writer and editor. Ever since he was a child, he knew his way around with words, and as he grew older this passion kept on increasing, and at the same time his writing skills were also getting better with each day passed.
Joel Landau managed to get his first job while he was still at university, and in 2004 he began reporting for the National Law Journal. During his time there he was responsible for covering stories on the latest developments in criminal cases, technological advances and legal industry trends. After a while he was fortunate to land a more serious position and was hired by The Daily Targum as the news editor. Over the course of one year he took care of the news content, story placement, and in addition to that he also supervised a team of eight editors and their staffs. That year The Targum was named "Best College Daily" in the nation at the 2005 Associated College Press Convention.
Moving on, Joel Landau next switched over to the Journal Register Company where he served as a writer and editor. While he was working there he won second place in the NJPA Better Newspaper Contest’s Robert P. Kelly Award in my newspaper’s category. In 2006 he took on another challenge and started working at The Daily Journal as a staff writer. After 4 years spent there, and so many stories, articles, columns, and opinion pieces published, Joel Landau decided it was time for a change and joined the staff of Press of Atlantic City, in his new position as a reporter. His latest working arrangement was over at the New York Daily News, a highly acclaimed newspaper. Here he stayed for two years and was mostly focused on covering YouTube and other viral videos.
