The Cord is still hiring vacant positions for their 2018-2019 team! Please submit both a resume and platform to our Editor-in-Chief Safina Husein ( ASAP.

A platform is an in depth cover letter. Please outline your relevant experience, vision for the job/section you are applying for, changes you would make and what would stay the same. Platforms should be approximately 3-5 pages in length.

*Note: Management positions are salaried, part-time positions; whereas Editorial Board and Senior Staff positions are voluntary, with the potential of receiving a performance-based honorarium at the end of the fall and winter semesters.

What is the commitment over the summer?

The Cord still publishes over the summer, just fewer issues. If hired, you will be expected to come to Waterloo on two occasions and contribute to summer production and training sessions.

Why should you work for The Cord opposed to just being a general volunteer?

Being a manager, member of the editorial board or senior staffer allows you hands on experience in both print and digital media that you cannot gain in the classroom. As a staff member, you will have input as to what appears in The Cord every week; you will be given the freedom and agency to make big decisions for your campus media. You will be given the opportunity to meet industry professionals and become more ingrained with the Laurier community, as well as the K-W community. Several “Cordies” from the past have excelled as freelancers or have gone on to work for major media organizations such as The Globe and Mail, Vice and CTV.
