Company History


Working World 344 CoverLong before Working Nurse, there was our sister publication, a free jobs mag called Working World.

If you had been walking near 7th and Fig in downtown LA. during the summer of 1988, you might have been handed a copy. Back then, we were a start-up operation and we distributed the magazine by passing it to people on street corners. Working World provides job opportunities and career-related articles for entry-level workers. (

The company was originally started by Catherine Rhodes — who still holds the title of editor and publisher —in her studio apartment. It is a classic American Dream story.

In 2003, Randy Goldring came on board as company president and we launched Working Nurse magazine as a sister publication. We figured our lively magazine format of combining job listings with career-related editorial would appeal to nurses, and it has! was launched April 2008. Thank you for being one of our visitors.
