If so, we’d love for you to consider applying for one of WOBC’s winter term staff positions! We are looking for a winter term station manager and engineer to keep our station running smoothly. Both of these positions are non paid but count as a full credit winter term project.

Here are the Job Descriptions:

General Manager The General Manager (GM) is the spokesperson for WOBC, and is responsible for the smooth operation of the organization as a whole. The GM, in conjunction with the other Board members, oversees the station, its assets, its broadcasts, and coordinates the activities of WOBC staff and DJs. Most importantly, the General Manager ensures that tasks set forth by the board are accomplished and that those delegated those tasks have the resources they require. The station manager keeps frequent office hours and is on call 24/7.

Student Engineer WOBC has a contracted engineer who is called in when we have problems with the transmitter, but any smaller repairs around the station of headphones, turntables, the main board, etc. are handled by the student engineer. The student engineer is on call, and must be able to be up at the station the day that a problem occurs, and is reported.
