Join Onward State: Info for Spring 2012

Onward State has a limited number of openings available on staff for our Spring 2012 editorial cycle.

With opportunities for student writers, photographers, and editors (or any combination of the three), Onward State leads Penn State student media with its community-driven focus on news. We work closely with partner site to provide our readers with the most comprehensive and immediate feed of relevant information that we can, and have generated a reach of more than 1,000,000 people annually with this award-winning approach. Our publishing company Lazerpro Digital Media Group has also provided Onward State with a corporate infrastructure that positions this student outlet for longterm sustainability. With stipends and other opportunities for advancement available, Onward State is a great place to spend your career as a Penn State student journalist (and just wait until you get on our Yammer network).

For students new to digital media and Onward State, the best way to join our editorial team is as an Onward State Contributor. Since we only have a limited number of slots available, we have a few set expectations for contributors. You will be:
● Responsible for attending contributor training sessions on content production and social media management taught by senior editors and guest lecturers.
● Responsible for attending the majority of all-staff meetings (held weekly on Monday nights at 7:15 p.m.).
● Responsible for contributing posts throughout the Spring 2012 semester.

Please apply using this Google Form by midnight on Saturday January 14.

Onward State has additional staff member and editor positions open to students with prior experience in digital media. For more information about those positions, please email Davis Shaver at [email protected] with a PDF copy of your resume and the subject ‘Onward State Resumes.’

For those of you merely reading this post out of curiosity, rest assured that we’ve got some great things planned for the next four months. We’re hoping to continue vigorously pursuing our mission to inform and connect the Penn State community by covering the issues and events that matter most, from the impact of continuing fallout of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal to our best tips for making it through a chilly night at Paternoville. Check back often for updates, and be sure to follow us on Twitter (@OnwardState) and subscribe to us on Facebook if you haven’t already.

P.S. Are you affiliated with a local business? We also have a post up today with information about advertising with Onward State!
