Apply to the Jacket

We are looking forward to hiring our Jacket staff for the second semester! As a student-run publication, we’re seeking passionate, hardworking, and engaged students to help us produce Berkeley High’s newspaper.

Columnists write a 550 word column on a topic of choice every two weeks. All work is done on the columnist’s own time, as there is no meeting time commitment. Their work and participation contributes to their Jacket grade. DUE JANUARY 27, 2020

Illustrators must attend one meeting every Friday and one every other Monday. They complete a quality illustration every two weeks, and have one week to complete each illustration. Their work is assessed and contributes to their Jacket grade. DUE JANUARY 27, 2020

We need to ask for your support for our amazing newspaper. We’re one of the premier student newspapers in the nation. In our 107-year history we’ve continuously pushed for excellence in journalism and education.

The most remarkable fact is this: the Jacket is entirely student-operated and is produced by a dedicated staff of over one hundred student editors, writers, photographers, illustrators, and designers on a very limited budget every week.
