The BruinLife Annual’s main objective is to give the UCLA student body an accurate reflection of the school year through photos and stories by Bruins and about Bruins. BruinLife Online aims to provide lifestyle and entertainment content to the UCLA community, distinct from Daily Bruin’s campus news. This includes guides to LA, tips for apartment hunting, reviews of local shows, trend alerts, etc. in blog-style articles.
After two quarters of fulfilling all member requirements and upon recommendation by their section editor, interns become eligible for stipend staff. To clarify, stipends are not the same as hourly compensation; rather, you're paid based on the assignments turned in.
Applicants do not need prior layout or design experience to apply for this position. There will be Student Media training sessions taught by professionals, staff workshops and office hours available for guidance. However, due to the nature of the position, layout and design interns with basic knowledge of Adobe InDesign and Adobe Photoshop will be preferred.
Please note that there is mandatory Student Media training for new interns, as well as any trainings held by your section editor. Student Media training usually occurs on the weekends after Weeks 3, 4 and 5. Further details will be provided upon acceptance.
