The Rival is seeking Staff Writers & Social Media Strategists

By Cierra Seid
Posted on 20 November 2017 | 12:05 pm — 

The Rival at CofC is hiring for the spring semester

Our Mission:

In the past decade, student news has been reduced to listicles, resume-builders, and click-bait. Most for-profit campus news publications aim for clicks and create teams of disconnected writers and editors, many of which are post-grads working from an office building in New York City. And, while traditional publications have sound content, the entire operation is stuck in the past. We want to change that.

Who​ ​are​ ​we​ ​looking​ ​for?

Staff writers: intelligent, hardworking journalists who have something to say
Social media strategists: creatives who maintain the brand by posting to socia media, planning events, and hosting fundraisers

To​ ​apply:
