The Collegian is hiring for two staff positions:

Reporter: Reporters are the backbone of The Collegian. They take on story assignments from section editors, covering events and topics related to News, Lifestyle, Sports and Opinion. As representatives of The Collegian brand, Reporters are responsible for communicating with editors on weekly story assignments, providing coverage, writing stories on deadline, cultivating sources and reviewing story edits made during the revision process. Reporters are expected to write at least 1 story every week. The ideal candidate(s) will have: a passion for journalism, a hunger to cover breaking news, good time management skills, open communication with sources and editors alike, a strong AP Style writing foundation, journalistic integrity and trustworthiness, professionalism, and a positive attitude. Photography/Videography skills not required, but highly encouraged. This is a paid position for 6 hours per week.

Contributor: Contributors do the same work as reporters, but are unpaid. As a contributor, you will receive the same feedback and support from the editors as reporters do. Since contributors are unpaid and volunteer their time, they are under no obligation to write a story every week, and are free to pick up stories from editors whenever they are available. Contributors still have their stories posted on The Collegian website, with the potential to have their stories published on The Collegian’s Paw Print, its special edition magazine that is produced twice a semester. The role of a contributor is flexible and allows students to build up their portfolio and try their hand at writing in AP Style and photojournalism.
