Here at HackCollege, we write a fair amount about startups based in Silicon Valley, but we’ve never actually had a writer stationed there to cover them in person, hence this post. 

If we pick you, you won’t just be writing about startups, but you will be our correspondent in the area as needed. The only criteria (beyond geography) is that you have to be a current college student (undergrad), and you have to be able to write. It’s a paid gig too, so you’ll need to have the free time and energy to commit to 2-3 posts per week. Everything else is negotiable.

Here’s what you need to email shep@hackcollege.com if you want to apply:

  • Basic contact information (including Twitter, if you’re on it)
  • Resume
  • A few recent writing samples
  • A list of five post ideas for HackCollege, one of which you should flesh out into a full guest post

If this piques our interest, we’ll get in touch to find out more about you. Good luck!

Also, sorry to anyone who wants to write for us who doesn’t live in the Bay area. We might have a more general call for writers sometime in the next few months.
