Good written and oral communication skills are listed as desired qualifications for nearly every job that someone may apply for no matter what field they enter.
At the George-Anne Inkwell, between the interviews staff writers conduct and the articles they write, all our writers can put experiences and a portfolio of work behind the claim that they have “good written and oral communication skills.”
Not to mention a whole slew of other skills such as working in a fast-paced environment, researching stories and adapting to different situations.
Additionally, you can receive scholarship money, depending on how many hours a week you work, to go to events hosted by the theatre department, the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Office of Student Activities, Greek Life, and more.
Yes, you have to report on those events, interview people at them, take pictures, and then, write about them later. But otherwise, if you come to work for the Inkwell, you could get paid to have a life outside of the classroom, or the library, and gain marketable skills while you’re at it.
If you are a writer or a photographer looking to build a professional portfolio, we want to give you every opportunity to get your work printed, something you can physically carry with you into any job interview you want.
We are a supportive team, and we want to encourage you to push yourself and strive to make great content, palatable to a wide audience, from your peers to your professors to university administrators.
