Dear Golden Antlers Hopefuls:
Hello, my name is Liat Kaplin and I’m the Editor-in-Chief of The Golden Antlers! We’re so glad you’re interested in joining our gang of comedic hooligans, even if we physically forced some of you to sign up! This post includes information that will A. blow your mind and B. tell you how to apply to join our staff, so listen up!
TO APPLY TO WRITE: Applying for the GA is a tricky concept because, in the end, we do most of our articles as a group. So here’s what we ask of you: prove you’re funny. You could send us some satire you wrote in highschool, a rant about the dining halls or mini-golf, screenshots of your ten funniest facebook statuses, or – best option – an article you could see us publishing on The Golden Antlers. Before you begin writing your application essay/document/whatever, take a gander at our top funniest posts of all time. That way you can get a feel for our sense of humor without straight up copying us. Can’t stress that enough, try to be original and not just go with the same old jokes. If that prompt is too open ended for you, email me back and we’ll cook something up.
If you pass the initial Application essay shenanigan, we will add you to our staff Facebook group which is where all the magic happers. That basically means you’re almost one of us! In order to become an official staff member you have to contribute significantly to at least three articles, but honestly, if you make it that far you’re in good shape and it shouldn’t be too hard.
TO APPLY FOR ONE OF OUR TEAMS: We have three teams: DESIGN, TECH, BUSINESS, and PRANKING. To apply for one of these teams, write a paragraph or two detailing your relevant experience. (If you’re applying for design or tech, send us examples of your work.) In your application paragraphs, you should make us feel like we will not even be able to function without you on the team. Make a strong case, and as always, make a few jokes if you can.
ALL APPLICANTS: Please include your school and year. We have (sorry CMC’ers) almost filled the CMC ranks and are especially looking for members from the other four schools. So make SURE you include your school and year (if, for example, you’re from Harvey Mudd we might just let you in by default, we desperately need Mudders) because it can only help you.
When you have completed your application mail it back to me at this address (thegoldenstagonline at gmail dot com).
I’m really looking forward to reading your applications, please email me with any questions or just to tell me how beautiful I and Jacksón are.
– Liat Kaplin and the Golden Antlers Staff
P.S. If you don’t like us on Facebook, we won’t even consider your application 😉 Not that we have any way to enforce that, but uh, throw us a bone.
