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. All State Press employees must be current ASU students. ASU Student Media is an equal opportunity employer.

Our Mission: We are a bold, risk-taking, digital student media organization intent on ethically serving, provoking and challenging a large and changing University audience. 

Apply for Fall 2024 staff: Apply here.

Please view the descriptions for each position 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.

Reporter applications for Fall 2024 are open now.

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 details. All State Pressers are required to participate in pitch meetings on Sundays in the downtown newsroom, as well as be available for in-person editing sessions for each piece of content produced. Questions?

Please view the descriptions for each position here.

The State Press accepts applications for all editor and staff positions at the end of each semester. Section editors are paid and will work three days per week.

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

Letters to the Editor: 

The State Press welcomes outside opinions. If you would like to contribute, email and Submissions must be under 500 words, contain your ASU affiliation and link to any facts or research you cite. Anonymity will not be granted.

Non-editorial Positions: Apply here
