APPRENTICE/ASSISTANT EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

Off The Cuff is looking for a committed, passionate individual to join our Executive Board. While every Executive Board member is a leader, the role of the Editor-in-Chief is distinct — the editor needs to be versed in and focused on every area of publishing, from both print and online, to the strength of our community. The Editor is the conduit for many voices, including all of the Executive Board as well as staff, and therefore must have excellent communication skills, both written and verbal. This position will begin in the spring semester as assistant to the Editor, during which time the individual will work closely with the current editor, taking on responsibilities and training which will include: weekly Eboard meetings and workshopping with the rest of eboard, attending one meeting of each team, supervising and attending Off The Cuff events, working with SAO and more.

This position will progress into the full Editor-in-Chief position in the Fall semester. As such, all applicants must be present on campus for both semesters. Previous experience working with SAO is a plus but not required. As the applicant must be extremely passionate about Off The Cuff, previous experience within the magazine is required. The Editor, along with the Executive Board, represents the entirety of Off The Cuff, and therefore, needs to embody and encompass our mission wholly, even outside of our publication. If you believe you have the skills, dedication, positivity and enthusiasm to be the next Editor of Off The Cuff, apply below!
