WEB EDITOR

The Web Editor will work closely with the EIC and Promotions Manager to ensure that Blueprint has a strong web presence and content strategy. Individual responsibilities will include uploading the issues (in PDF form) to the website, collaborating on a social media strategy, and ensuring web content is up to date. Experience with WordPress and knowledge of basic HTML and/or CSS is an asset, but not a requirement. Candidates should, however, show a willingness to learn the basics of web design and upkeep. There is a lot of opportunity for creativity in this role and candidates are encouraged to take initiative to fulfil their vision for Blueprint’s web strategy, whether that involves regular blog posts, issue-themed playlists, an e-newsletter, or other online methods of reader engagement.

Please bring examples of your work (if you have previous web experience) to the interview.

PRODUCTION MANAGER

The Production Manager will work closely with the Editor-in-Chief on the physical production of each issue. Having a strong influence on the design of page layouts, image selection, and the overall look of Blueprint, the Production Manager should have acute design and computer skills. They also require a comprehension and desire to learn the process of production, the ability to dedicate specific time to the construction of the issue, and the ability to work efficiently both individually and in a group dynamic.

Please note that examples of your own work (maximum of two) should be brought to the interview.

Please attach a 1-2 page platform outlining your vision and goals for this position.

LITERARY EDITOR

The Literary Editor is someone who has a critical and comprehensive eye for the writing of others. In charge of the written content within Blueprint, the Literary Editor must also submit at minimum one original piece every issue. They should have strong interpersonal skills, as they will be tasked with communicating with contributors and encouraging others to contribute. Also, the Literary Editor must have strong reading and writing skills, as editing, proofreading, and critical examination of text are imperative to this position.

Please note that examples of your own work (maximum of two) should be brought to the interview.

ART AND PHOTOGRAPHY MANAGER

They must contribute original work to each issue. The Art and Photography Manager must also work with the Editor-in-Chief in finding and contacting artists to design cover art for each issue. A passionate interest in art and photography is important for this position, as are strong design and artistic skills, interpersonal skills, and action plans to gather a wide variety of different mediums of art to include within issues.

Please note that examples of your own work (maximum of two) should be brought to the interview.

By creating original ad campaigns, holding concourse booths, and placing posters on campus with issue and event advertisements, the Promotions Manager will have a significant impact on Blueprint’s image. Skills and experience within marketing, knowledge of multiple mediums that materials can be made and promoted in, and a creative approach are important for this position. Strong social media skills are also essential.
