Sports

Writing for a newspaper can be a big commitment, but if you want to write for The Tiger at your own leisure, the general assignment reporter may be the position for you. As an assignment reporter, you will take assignments from the sports editor when you please. The more you write, the better assignments you will likely be able to accept. For this position, there is no application needed, and all you need to do is to reach out and your work can begin to be published!

Want to write about one sport specifically for The Tiger? Become a beat reporter and cover one of the many sports Clemson has to offer. From football to women’s lacrosse, there are plenty of intriguing options. While this position requires an application, you get to choose which sport you want to cover and what your weekly article is about.

Art

Photos catch the eye, but not every article has a photo that fits what the content is. That’s where creative illustrations and graphics come in! As an illustrator, you’ll work with the Art Director and members of The Tiger’s staff to draw, design and create art for The Tiger’s print and online content.

The Tiger occasionally publishes cartoons in the TimeOut section in print and online. These cartoons can be comical or political, that’s up to you! Sound interesting? Send some examples of your artwork and ideas for cartoons to our Art Director at art@thetigercu.com.

Business

Got a knack for sales? Or maybe you’re looking to make a little money while getting a lot of experience? If so, being an advertising representative with The Tiger could be for you. The Tiger is dependent on money made from selling ads in print, online and on social media in order to drive growth among all sections and departments.

As a distributor, you can be at the forefront of the most essential part of The Tiger’s print release: distribution. The Tiger distributes thousands of issues around campus and the Clemson area every two weeks and you can be a part of the team that makes that happen!

How it works

Shifts are on Thursday mornings starting at 7:30 am every two weeks. You can sign up whenever you are available! Shifts end around 10:30am for on-campus distribution and 9am for off-campus distribution. On-campus distribution uses The Tiger’s golf cart to get to all of our locations around campus, while off-campus uses a staff member’s car (provided).

If you’re interested, just send an email to editor@thetigercu.com and our Editor-in-Chief will be in touch shortly!

This position has no deadline and anyone interested is encouraged to reach out at any point during the semester.
