Team Inky For The Win!
February 26, 2009 at 11:45 am
If you're eager to be part of Philly's beloved Inky before it goes down in flames, applying for the Inquirer's "Off Campus" editorial board may be your way in. Once again, this seems like awkward timing. We're guessing that due to the recent filing for bankruptcy, you'll probably be paid negative pennies (if that) -- even Brian Tierney, the CEO, is giving back his $232,000 dollar raise from last December. Despite the lack of pay, this could be your shot at fame. And who knows? The Inquirer always has a shot at being included in a newspaper bailout.
The posting for applications can be found here. Text of the posting follows:
If you are a college student or a recent graduate in Pennsylvania, New Jersey or Delaware and want to be considered for The Inquirer's "Off Campus" board of contributors, please submit a sample essay suitable for publication, resume, photo, and recommendation letter from a faculty sponsor. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; fax: 215-854-4483; mail: "Off Campus," Inquirer Editorial Board, 400 N. Broad St., Philadelphia, PA 19130. Must be received by March 2.
