Testudo Times is hiring for 2017 and beyond.
We’re looking to bring on a couple new contributors to serve in a variety of roles.
Here are a couple of them:
Copy editor: We’re looking for someone who has an excellent grasp of AP Style and flexible availability throughout the week to manage the work that comes through.
Recruiting writer: We’re looking for people to help in both our football and basketball recruiting coverage. This’ll include weekly roundups, interviewing recruits and preparing breaking news hits. Experience covering recruiting not required.
Spring non-revenue sports beat writer: We send writers to every lacrosse, baseball and softball game. This is great experience for young writers who want to cover football and basketball one day. We’ve filled most of these already, but are looking to add a few more.
Video producer: We’re looking to add someone who can help expand our social video production. This person won’t have to be a “broadcast host” in a traditional sense, though there could be opportunities to appear in front of the camera as well. Most responsibilities here will revolve around designing videos like this one.
We’re especially interested in Maryland journalism students, but we’re open to anyone who wants to write. Availability, commitment and willingness to write — a lot — are the most important qualities we’re looking for.
A little more about us: We’re one of the premier online destinations for Maryland sports fans. We’re not a “blog” in a traditional sense. We have credentials to cover Maryland sports and we do so in a modern, in-depth fashion. We’ve sent writers on to full- or part-time positions at SB Nation, Sports Illustrated, The Washington Post, SiriusXM and Rivals.
Interested in one or more of those positions? Send a resume, writing samples (if you’ve got ‘em) and a one-paragraph statement telling me why you think you’re qualified to firstname.lastname@example.org. Got questions? Send ‘em there too.
