Work For Us

The State Press is an award-winning multimedia news organization looking to hire our next great crop of student journalists! SP operates a daily news website and a magazine that publishes three times each semester. For most positions, this is primarily an afternoon and nighttime job. Paid State Pressers may not hold another University job, and all must be current ASU students. ASU Student Media is an equal opportunity employer.

Please view the descriptions for each position here. 

Spring ’17 Staff: Apply here.

The State Press accepts applications for all editor and staff positions at the end of each semester. We continue hiring staff throughout the semester.

There are both paid and unpaid staff positions available. Full-time paid positions typically call for two pieces of content produced per week, while part-time unpaid positions ask for one piece of content weekly. This varies by section — see the  job descriptions for more detail. All State Pressers are required to participate in in-person pitch meetings on Sundays in Tempe, as well as come in for an in-person editing session for each piece of content produced. Questions?

Freelance & JMC 301/345 Submissions: Pitch us your JMC 301 or freelance story here.

We've all been there, and we're here to help. The State Press accepts pitches from JMC301 students, as well as freelance writers, on a regular basis. However, we do hold freelancers to the same standards as our own reporters — therefore, all pitches must have a strong, relevant ASU angle, multimedia elements, three sources and in-person edits. SP encourages freelancers and 301 students to pitch us their stories early ... and not to wait until the last week of school to fulfill all six publication requirements. Questions? Email

Spring '17 Editor: 

The State Press accepts applications for all editor and staff positions at the end of each semester. We have already closed the application for the spring 2017 semester. We will open the application for next fall later this spring. Section editors are paid and will work three days per week. Questions? Email
