Canyon News is a team made up of people who are passionate about finding the truth and telling it. Our goal is to provide a media outlet that doesn’t focus on ratings and popularity yet gives the reader something to lean on… the truth!
Your first 6 months with us is mostly learning. We teach you how to weed out the media hype, spin and non-truths. Since we want to make sure everyone in our team is passionate about what we do, we have a competitive procedure to become part of our team. There are three ways to get your foot in the door:
1) ADVERTISING SALES: Our Advertising Department accepts field and home ad reps. For the first 90 days, compensation is strictly performance based. You create your own schedule and strategy. After you successfully reach minimal quota for 6 months, we offer you a position.
2) INTERNSHIP PROGRAM: We have endless opportunity to experience hands on learning in any department. Our programs are 15 weeks, 26 weeks or 52 weeks. 98% of our staff has been chosen from our internship program. Your hours are typically done from one of our offices or your home. We accept new applications as spaces in our team become available. You must be able to complete a minimum of 8 hours per week.
3) VOLUNTEER: This is similar to an intern position, however it’s not for school credit. It also has more flexibility in your involvement. You can choose to do a column as a freelance writer or you can work in any department as you see fit. If you wish to do a column, please submit a one paragraph pitch of your column idea and submit with the application. You must be available a minimum of 8 hours per month.
