All editors are required to put in the time and effort to be successful in their position. A range of 5-6 hours per week is the average office hours that is recommended.
ALL PRODUCTION EDITORS are responsible for proofs, including reading all copy and checking for layout mistakes!
For the past few years we have been using Daily Bruin copy and articles in tandem with Bruinlife articles; for this reason the Photo Manager will not just be responsible for what his/her own staff produces, but for working with the Business Operations Manager to choose appropriate Daily Bruin photos for spreads that use DB content. We will be largely utilizing DB content for all sections aside from the Student Life section, and Bruinlife articles the DB does not traditionally cover, e.g. Senior of the Year, more developed Spring Sing content, etc. For articles that Bruinlife will continue to be solely responsible for, the Photo Manager will be responsible for managing assignments for the photo staff, and ensuring the taken or used photos are in fitting with the Business Operations Manager and Photo Manager’s vision of the photography for each specific page—this will be worked out prior to giving out assignments.
