Should you be chosen for an interview, we want to have a good chat and really get to know you. If you don’t feel like a good fit at the time, never fear, you can join our roster of paid contributors. We’re one of the only student newspapers to pay our contributors ($20, if you’re curious). Before your interview, which will be held online, please think about the following:
What changes would you like to make to The Carillon
If you’re applying to be a writer or section editor, what are three stories you’re itching to write?
What do you like about what we do?
What would you bring to our office culture? — bonus points for snacks.
We are an inclusive employer and welcome all applicants. The only requirement is that you must be enrolled in courses in the fall. Also, we know that wages aren’t posted here. That’s because the board has to meet to discuss wages for the next year (boy, pandemics really do screw with this place’s transition plans). By the time you accept a position, your pay grade will be figured out and we are open to any and all money questions at the interview stage. We are currently filling the following position(s):
