Interviews are held once a semester for Wayne State University students. Students may interview to join the organization for the Fall and Winter semesters.
The WAYN Radio student organization is accepting applications for the Fall 2016 semester beginning May 9th until October 1st, 2016.
If you are registered for the WAYN Radio class, COM 4680 for the Winter 2016 semester you are not permitted to submit an application package for membership.
To apply you must turn in a show proposal and a resume. We also suggest including a cover letter.
What is a show proposal?
The show proposal does not have a set format but needs to be detailed enough so we can fully understand your desired program. Tell us about your show! Want to do a show about your favorite movie soundtrack? How about a social justice show? Remember, do not make your show generic. You want your show to stand out. Let us know your target audience, promotion methods and include a sample script. Your script would include specific songs, and what you plan to say on air. The length of the proposal should exceed one page.
Do I need a cover letter?
Though the cover letter is not mandatory, a cover letter can give more insight on your experience and add a personal touch to your application. If you have never written a cover letter this is also a good opportunity to practice. Here at WAYN Radio we receive dozens of applications and including a cover letter provides more information about you and helps you stand out.
Look at our program schedule and review what we already offer. Think of a unique program that you don’t see on our schedule and incorporate your interests.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for students that can create original content and fresh perspectives. For the Fall 2016 semester we are looking for genre, and topic specific programs. If you turn in a proposal similar to our current programming we will not accept it.
After the deadline we will review all of the applications and contact selected applicants for an in studio interview. If the interview goes well we will contact you about your acceptance into the organization and will email you with further information.
Email your resume, cover letter and show proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
