Woroni is looking for a second round of News Reporters to join our exceptional news team at ANU Student Media for the rest of Semester 1. The role of a News Reporter will be:
- To write and content for the magazine and online, by responding to current events and issues on campus.
- This can be overseeing a specific area of interest, or the role can encompass a wide array of topics and areas of university life. These areas can include: postgrad issues, ANU research, housing issues, low SES awareness, international students, ANUSA, clubs and societies, workplace issues, arts events, higher ed policies, university degree changes, funding changes.
- To be aware of events and issues on campus for potential publication – you are the eyes and ears of the student body!
Reporters must be able to adhere to strict deadlines and to work as part of a large team, including other reporters, senior reporters and editors. They will be expected to attend weekly meetings and training sessions at the beginning of the semester. As a reporter you will be expected to write one article per week, which will be published in print and/or online. Reporters need to have a clear understanding of spelling, grammar and structure in writing, as there will be little oversight to your style of writing. Previous experience in publishing, editing or writing is an advantage, but by no means necessary. Ideal candidates will be a team player, a good planner but also good under pressure. Good communication skills are also essential as you will be conducting interviews face-to-face, on the phone and via email with varied stakeholders. Reporters can expect to receive an honorarium based on their commitment to the role at the end of Semester.
