The Globe has positions for editors and reporters. All must currently be enrolled in academic classes at the Germantown campus.
Reporters primarily write the articles that appear in the newspaper and may not work on every edition. They may cover a particular beat such as Student Senate or athletics, or they may be assigned a topic by the editors. They will be asked to attend occasional editorial meetings and a training session at the beginning of the semester. Depending on the number of articles they write during the semester, they will receive a small stipend for their participation. No experience is necessary to be a reporter, but individuals must have strong writing skills, be reliable in meeting commitments, and be comfortable working on their own in getting information for their assigned articles.
Editors have a more time-consuming job and perform a variety of tasks: the editor-in-chief has overall responsibility for the paper. A news editor works with reporters on assigning articles, ensuring they are delivered on time, and edits copy received. A layout editor does the actual layout of the paper and must have some software and graphics ability. Editors may also write articles for The Globe. They must be available to attend bi-weekly editorial meetings in addition to their academic classes. Editors must also have strong writing skills and be reliable in meeting deadlines and working independently. Preference is given to individuals with experience working on a newspaper although training can be given to those without experience. It is preferred that individuals in editorial positions do not work outside of the college. Presuming they fulfill the requirements of their position, they will receive a significant stipend at the end of the semester.
