What positions are available at The Hoya?
The Hoya has two divisions: editorial and publishing. The editorial division, headed by the editor-in-chief, is responsible for producing the newspaper. The publishing division, run by the general manager, is responsible for the business operations of the newspaper. Editorial sections offer entry-level positions in news, opinion, sports, The Guide (the arts and lifestyle magazine), copy, photography, layout, multimedia and our blog — 4E. Publishing departments offer entry-level positions in sales, accounting, corporate development, personnel, technology and marketing. Click here for more details on each section and department.
What is the difference between columnist applications and regular applications? If I’ve missed the columnist application deadline, can I still join The Hoya?
Columnists contribute to The Hoya on a periodic basis by submitting pieces that follow a predetermined theme, but are not considered staff members of The Hoya. Each semester, The Hoya also opens applications for entry-level staff positions in each of its sections and departments. Entry-level staffers contribute to The Hoya on a regular basis by completing assignments from their editors/directors. As full staffers, they are also eligible for promotions, provided training, given the opportunity to attend professional development workshops and invited to participate in The Hoya’s social activities. Columnist applications and regular staff applications have different due dates, so please read applications closely.
Do I need to send in a resume with my application?
No. Resumes are not required or considered at the application stage. If you are selected for an interview, you will be asked to provide a resume at that time. Attend our resume workshop on Thursday, Sept. 18 in ICC 107 if you want help with your resume before your interview.
Can I apply to multiple sections or departments? Will doing so increase my chances of being hired?
While you can apply to two sections or departments if you so choose, this will not increase your chances of being hired. We strongly encourage all applicants to apply only to sections or departments that they are genuinely interested in.
I don’t want to miss the deadline! Can I be notified before the application closes?
Sure! You can check out our Facebook and Twitter pages to receive updates or add your name to our interested applicants listserv here.
I have no writing, media or business experience. Can I still apply?
Yes. No prior experience is necessary for any entry-level position. However, we encourage you to mention any experience or technical skills that are related to the positions that interest you or that may be valuable to The Hoya.
