Interested in working for the Arizona Daily Wildcat, KAMP Student Radio or UATV-3?
Arizona Student Media engages nearly 200 paid and volunteer students in meaningful real-world experiences in journalism, media, design and business that complement coursework and provide students with intensive leadership roles.

The Daily Wildcat
The Daily Wildcat offers a variety of opportunities for students to practice journalism in a professional work environment. Roles include reporting and editing to accounting, graphic design and advertising support/marketing. We typically begin hiring at the start of each semester and often a second time halfway through each semester.
The Daily Wildcat and DailyWildcat.com employ more than 100 reporters, photographers, copy editors and visual designers (among other positions) during the school year, and a couple dozen during the summer. Though prior journalism experience is not an official requirement, applicants for all positions will be expected to submit an application and samples of their work. Contact the Editor-in-Chief at email@example.com for more details and information on how to apply.
