The Caravel Compass (TCC) conveys a holistic report of the week’s most important news topics. It provides the reader with trends and events to follow and strives to briefly familiarize them with each event. The newsletter is designed to bridge the gap between politics, news reporting, and the media. Our goal is to facilitate engagement with underreported, international news while presenting it in a manner conducive to an active lifestyle.

In its first year, TCC has greatly increased subscriptions to The Caravel, garnered readers across the world (from Colombia, China, Egypt, England, France, India, Spain, and more) and expanded to deep dives on issues of broader regional and interregional consequence, such as political elections. In this process, we have amassed hundreds of readers and been shared by other news organizations on social media.

As a member of the TCC team, creativity is encouraged! Recommended sources of inspiration include Eurasia Group’s Signal, The Atlantic’s Politics and Policy, Vox Sentences, and the Council on Foreign Relations’ Daily Brief. Click here to see the TCC archive.

Applicants for TCC are expected to have strong, creative writing or artistic skills, along with knowledge of and experience and interest in a specific international region. TCC gives its staffers the freedom to work with a team to shape not only the role within the organization of The Caravel’s newest division but also our vision. TCC also empowers its staff to dive deeper into interregional and international events and create professional, journalistic editorials.
