We have created a series of modules to provide you all the information you need to join the staff. Each section will take only five to 10 minutes to get through and can be used as a resource throughout your tenure here. You will be expected to understand and follow the guidelines that follow, including ethics and social media policies you will be asked to sign.


All staff, whether new or returning, must submit the Ethical Standards and Social Media Policy consent forms before you can start working this Fall. You will find those forms in Module 2.


Profiles and Blox Access

New Staff Members: You must also fill out the Blox access form in "Profile Information and Set Up."


Returning Staff: To update your byline/profile:
  • Go to https://admin-newyork1.bloxcms.com/
  • Login using your mix account. If you can’t remember your password, reset it.
  • Once you log in, you’ll see your email address at the top right of the screen. Click it an go to “Profile.” From there, just go through each tab to change or add info- the more you dd, the more that shows up on your profile on the site under your byline.


Start with "Reporter Set Up" below, and then work through each orientation module at your own pace. Individual modules have multiple pages, so please continue through each page of the individual modules until you see the "End of Module" note.
