You have big shoes to fill.
Here are some projects the social media interns at Marquette’s Office of Marketing and Communication have recently worked on:
Creating epic lists on Tumblr
… and much, much more.
We entrust our interns with a high degree of responsibility. You’ll be speaking on behalf of a 130+ year institution of higher learning. It’s a huge privilege none of us take lightly.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun, get creative and break boundaries. After all, you’re communicating with your peers. That’s why I’ll rely on you to come up with new ideas that cut through the noise. Your role is to help us communicate Marquette’s mission in a way that’s interesting, innovative and make people pay attention and care.
I know you’re up to the task. I have seen your work in my role as Director of Social Media, as well as an adjunct professor of Media Writing and Social Media Analytics. You inspire me on a daily basis.
So let’s work together. Some of the challenges that await you could include:
Help craft a strategy and create content for the College of Arts & Sciences new social media channels.
Discover and write about research that is happening on campus, from engineering to the humanities.
Surprise me and come up with initiatives and ideas I haven’t even thought of yet.
Are you in? If so, review the official social media intern job description on JobConnection and send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Finally, DO NOT write me a cover letter. Instead, write a Medium post — you can simply respond to this post —that explains why you would be a good fit for this role. If you would prefer that this letter is not public, you can create an unlisted post. Send me that link, too.
