Simpson’s Office of Marketing and Public Relations is looking for a student eager to help report and write stories for the department’s various publications and the Simpson website.

Purpose of Job:

To help supply content for such outlets as Simpson magazine and the college’s website. Assignments will range from writing press releases to covering news events and writing feature stories. The student will benefit from working one-on-one with a former newspaper journalist and will gain the experience and clips necessary to impress a future employer.

Duties and Responsibilities:

Accept writing assignments from OMPR, which will include covering events (such as speeches) or writing feature stories. Be responsible for setting up interviews. Ability to meet deadlines very important.

Job Qualifications

Must be available to dedicate at least 10 hours per week, have the ability to cover a variety of story situations and meet deadlines. First preference will be given to students who are majoring in mass communication and have previous experience working for the campus newspaper, but that is not a requirement for someone eager to learn. Must be organized and a self-starter. Story-telling ability also is beneficial.
