Script Writing Job Opportunity

A note from Jessica Best, creator of a sci-fi podcast: “I have a paid opportunity for your students, if they are interested in sci-fi and script-writing. My award-winning audio fiction podcast, The Strange Case of Starship Iris, is heading towards its second season, and I’m looking to hire staff writers for the writers’ room. The pay would be $60 per (roughly 40-minute) episode. Writers of color, transgender writers, nonbinary writers, and/or queer writers are especially encouraged to apply. The deadline is October 15th.

“The Strange Case of Starship Iris is a series about outer space, survival, espionage, resistance, identity, friendship, found family, romance, and secrets. (Also, there’s jokes.) I’ve had a ton of fun creating it, and seeing the audience response.”

Student Election Day Service Opportunity

Work on Election Day - College

From the Cook County Clerk’s office:

Democracy doesn’t just happen.  College students can make a difference in local elections, but they can’t do it from the sidelines. During the 2014 Election cycle, 83% of 18-24 year olds chose NOT to vote, NOT to be heard. We want that to change!
 
The March 20th Gubernatorial Primary is coming up and the Cook County Clerk’s office urges all students to register and vote and then go one step further and apply to serve voters on Election Day in a suburban polling place.  Local democracy depends on the poll workers who take pride in making it possible for their fellow citizens to cast their ballots and have their voices heard.
 
There are two positions available for students: Election Judge or Equipment Manager. Both Election Judges and Equipment Managers assist voters and ensure the polling place is running smoothly. Equipment Managers are also responsible for setting up and maintaining the voting equipment. Due to the additional responsibility, Equipment Managers receive more training and get higher pay. Election Judges earn $190, Equipment Managers earn $340.
