Welcome to the Daily Bruin Fall 2021 application period! You have until October 4, 2021 to complete your application to one of the premier student newspapers in the country.
The Daily Bruin is the student newspaper at the University of California, Los Angeles. Founded in 1919, it is one of the largest student organizations on campus, consisting of more than 400 staffers across 17 departments: news, sports, arts & entertainment, opinion, design, illustrations and cartoons, data and graphics, photo, copy-editing, web development, BruinWalk development, The Quad, video and podcasts, PRIME (our quarterly magazine), Enterprise (investigative reporting), social media and outreach.
We will be holding workshops to answer questions and help you through the application process in the weeks leading up to the application due date. Experience, "connections" or an intricate resume are not required.
Please follow us on social media for application reminders, but everything you need for a successful application is hosted on this website.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Am I eligible to apply? If you're a UCLA undergraduate or graduate student, yes! If you are a UCLA Extension student, recent graduate, high school hopeful or otherwise, you are unfortunately ineligible to apply.
Can I apply to multiple sections? No. Please fill out ONLY ONE application. If you create multiple applications, they will all be denied. If you are interested in multiple sections, please let your interviewer know! After the onboarding process is complete, you will have multiple opportunities to cross-train into other sections.
When will intern training happen? Your editors will fill you in on training specifics during the interview phase of hiring. Intern training will be held during the weekends following Week 3, 4 and 5 over Zoom. You must also attend media law and sensitivity training upon hiring, with a date to be determined. These are all required and your acceptance to the organization is contingent upon your participation.
Can I join [x organization] AND the Daily Bruin? Our conflict of interest policies prevent students from working for both the Daily Bruin and political organizations/committees, including student government. You may apply to the Daily Bruin and student government, but you must choose between the two if you’re accepted into both. Staffers from the Opinion section may join conventional partisan political groups (Bruin Democrats, Bruin Republicans, etc.) as long as they do not hold leadership positions in these groups. Staffers outside of the Opinion section may not join conventional partisan political groups, but may join non-partisan political groups like Bruin Political Union.
