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.

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.
