Editorial Positions

Video Producer

About the Position

Multimedia producers work individually and with other departments to produce comprehensive multimedia pieces such as video, audio and interactive content to tell a story from a multitude of perspectives.

Videos are published on The Daily Californian’s YouTube channel, social media platforms and website. Digital reporting techniques are changing rapidly, providing new skills and opportunities for journalists and reporters. We hope to be at the forefront of this growth and development. Some knowledge of digital publication techniques, video shooting and editing is a plus but not required.

Application Materials

  • Resume (PDF, about one page in length)
  • Cover letter (PDF, about one page in length)
  • Video clips, photos or any type of multimedia content
    • Please either save your samples as separate video/photo files or create a single PDF with links to your samples.
  • Interview (invitation only)

Work Requirements

  • One project every two weeks
  • Weekly multimedia staff meeting
    • Reduced workload option: The Daily Cal understands that some applicants may have disabilities and/ or extenuating circumstances that would prevent them from working two full days per week, such as a necessary, paying job that takes up a significant amount of time outside of classes. If this is the case, applicants may choose to apply for a reduced workload position, which would involve working one day per week instead of two.

Leadership Opportunities

  • After serving as a video producer, a staff member may go on to become a deputy multimedia editor or the multimedia editor.
