Volume 37 Elections Are Almost Here

Tuesday March 1 @ 4 p.m. in The Link’s office

The Link is looking to grow our team and needs editors to fill next year’s masthead. All the positions are open.

Editor-in-Chief
Make the big calls and represent the paper. Through rain, snow and sleepless nights, you lead the troops of this paper to greatness.

Coordinating Editor
Direct the newspaper’s online content and stay on top of news, fringe, sports and opinion content cycles. Take on the mountain of the Internet through cunning social media strategy and innovative digital ideas.

Managing Editor
Journalism works because deadlines are enforced. Oversee the newspaper’s print production, keep editors and staff on their game, and make sure the paper comes out on time.

Current Affairs Editor
Put your magnifying glass to the week’s happenings and dig deeper. Curate in-depth features and give context to news around Concordia.

News Editor
Direct the online news content. Get to know every inch of Concordia and its politicos. Recite acronyms and chase the truth.

Assistant News Editor
Keeping up with everything around Concordia needs a strong tag-team. Ensure news coverage runs smoothly and help the news editor avoid insanity.

Opinions Editor
Separate the crazy from the coherent and put together one killer Opinions section. Hunt down the strong debaters and the columnist and give them a page to fill.

Copy Editor
Keep articles out of synonym hell and catch the mistakes, big or small. Make the boring stories exciting and the exciting stories even better.

Fringe Arts Editor
Expose all that’s cool and underground in Montreal. From gallery openings to bands with three name changes, you’re the go-to person for what’s up-and-up in arts.

Fringe Online
The online, regular counterpart to the fringe arts editor, you tell Concordia what’s worth seeing and what to avoid.

Sports Editor
Find the story behind the game. Give a voice to the athletes and highlight the great wins and tough times for all of Concordia’s teams.

Sports Online
Be the ultimate source of knowledge for all things Stingers. Fast stats, game recaps, video and podcast work are your wheelhouse.

Design the visual language of the newspaper. Lay it out, make it pretty and break design boundaries.

Photo/Video Editor
Capture the ups and downs of Concordia life. Snap photos and video of Stingers games, protests and everything in between.
