Dear future Stanford Daily staffers:
Welcome to The Daily’s application portal! Here, you’ll find information about the sections and teams that comprise our staff.
We publish an email newsletter every weekday, as well as a roundup on weekends, while maintaining a website and multiple social media accounts. Behind all of this is our team of staffers — writers, photographers, graphic designers, web developers, podcasters and more — with diverse interests and skill sets.
Our diversity transcends the work we do. Sure, some Daily staffers study communication and English and political science, but we are also computer science, engineering and economics majors. Some of us were editors of our high school papers, but many of us never even considered journalism before coming to Stanford. Our staff includes freshmen as well as grad students. Our staffers also vary in their time commitments to The Daily; some contribute an article or two per quarter, while others contribute virtually every production night. We celebrate these differences too, as they bring the broadest swath of Stanford community perspectives to the paper.
No matter your background experience, your area of study or your other campus involvements, we want you to feel empowered to craft a Daily experience that’s most fulfilling (and fun!) for you. The Daily is already yours as much as it is ours.
Beyond our work, most staffers say it’s the strong sense of community that keeps them coming back. Even in this period of remote work, we will host regular staff social events over Zoom, including trivia and game nights.
We hope you’ll join us as we write a new chapter of The Daily’s history.
