IV. Daily Californian Seeking Environment Beat Writers
Dear All,

I am the environment beat reporter with The Daily Californian, which means I have the privilege of exploring the environmental movement as it pertains to projects on campus and the city at large. With Berkeley pledging to be zero waste by 2020 and the university pursuing stricter sustainability requirements, this beat requires me to take a critical look at what is needed to reach these goals. I also write a lot of features about green startup companies and eco-friendly technology. Basically, if there's a story with an environmental angle, I get first dibs.

I am looking for students who are passionate about the environment to work with me on the environment beat. You don't have to have any prior experience, you just have to enjoy writing. Reporters generally come in two days a week (sometimes more in the event of protests) and are in charge of turning in two stories per week.

Please give me a call at (209) 470-1492 or e-mail me at mbloudoff@dailycal.org by Sunday, April 18 if you are interested, and I can answer any questions you have about the position and the application.

Best,
Mollie Bloudoff-Indelicato
