Pitt News Needs Summer Staff!
Hello Pitt students!
The Pitt News is taking applications for writers, photographers, illustrators and copy editors for its weekly summer editions.
Nine summer editions will be published every Wednesday, excluding the week of July 4. Summer production begins the third week of May and continues regularly throughout June and July, with one additional edition at the end of August. New hires are welcome to continue working at TPN when daily production start up again for the 2018 fall term.
The Pitt News has a reputation of excellence with employers. Many of our staff have gone on to successful careers in journalism, communication and marketing as well as careers in other fields where their work at our publication and the skills they gained through it was a bright spot on their resume.
Prior experience in journalism is not necessary. New hires will receive training as well as opportunities to strengthen their skills as a writer, artist and/or photographer.
Photographers are paid by the picture, illustrators by the drawing, copy editors by the hour and writers by the character.
Staff members are expected to communicate well and handle flexible hours. Pittsburgh-based staff members are needed, although writers, copy editors and illustrators may also work from outside of the city.
If you are interested in working with us, please fill out an application at https://pittnews.com/application/ and indicate in the questions/comments section that you would like to begin work in the summer. Questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to hearing from you!
