BPR Interviews Board Application
Because the study of politics is at its core the study of people, every issue of BPR offers a section devoted to interviews, to conversations with the people we hear about, the public figures we read about, and the thought leaders we think about. As you will learn on this board, interviews are more an art than a science. For this reason, we are looking for applicants who are willing to push boundaries and explore their creative faculties through the medium of the interview.
As a member, you will cultivate skills in research, conversation, and maintaining grace under pressure. Ideal candidates should possess strong conversational and interpersonal skills, as well as be able to keep composure and improvise in the presence of public figures. They must also have the editorial skills necessary to successfully produce publishable interviews. Foremost, however, candidates should be thoughtful. They should have an interesting, distinct worldview that they want to translate into our publication through the individuals they interview.
