Blueprint is hiring for the 2018-2019 year!
To apply, please send your résumé and platform to Sophia Grande-Lawlor at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 15th. Any questions can be directed to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
* A platform is a 1-2 page document outlining your vision and goals for this position.
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 fulfill 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.
While overseeing Blueprint’s distribution on the Brantford campus, the Brantford Manager will work with the Editor-in-Chief to discuss functionality, productivity, and possibilities of how Brantford can be more included and become more aware of Blueprint. The Brantford Manager also will be responsible for supporting the efforts of the other Brantford Staff.
In collaboration with the senior staff team on both the Waterloo and Brantford campuses, Blueprint interns will have the opportunity to assist in editing written submissions, formatting visual submissions, helping with production, and assisting in the promotion of new issues and events. Interns will have the opportunity to get their feet wet and develop their skills with a variety of different aspects of the publication, so an enthusiasm to learn is important for this position. We will try our best to suit projects and assignments to interns’ interests.
