“Applying to work for The Daily Tar Heel was hands down the best decision I've ever made. In my four years of working at the DTH, I learned not only how to report and write, but also learned who I am and what I can accomplish. It became a home I never wanted to leave. It was a place where -- in between paper plane wars, covering two elections, napping on 'The Couch' and putting out a daily newspaper -- I found my best friends. If you're even remotely interested in journalism, become a part of the DTH -- the best college paper in the country. It will change your life.”

Advertising

“Four weeks into freshman year, I joined the ad staff knowing little about the ropes of the job. After a few months of training and getting to know everyone, I felt like I had been on staff for years. DTH ad staff is one of the very few jobs on campus that allows you to gain supreme real-world experience while strengthening both your professional and social networks. From becoming good friends with local business owners to catching up with other staffers in the office, DTH is home away from home that allows you to grow as an individual and helps to open doors of opportunity that would have otherwise never appeared.”

Our account executives build relationships with clients and help sell and provide advertising and marketing services to both national and local clients.
