    Apply to be a Social Media Intern at the University

    March 21, 2019

    Interested in a work-study position that will get you ready for your first job in marketing or communications? Want to work closely with the University's Marketing Communications team to engage prospective students, students, alumni, faculty and staff with your favorite University? 

    The Department of Marketing Communications is seeking a new social media intern beginning this summer and through the 2019-2020 academic year.

    We're looking for a creative self-starter who has a knack for writing copy and understands how important social media is to establish a strong brand identity. You'll do everything from planning and scheduling social media posts across various channels to working with statistics (an important skill in this field!) to analyzing news to help us improve and innovate!

    Contact marketing@scranton.edu to request the full job description. Read on to find out about preferred experience and requirements! 

    Preferred Experience
     

    • Good working knowledge of social media in general as well as an awareness of how it can be part of a brand marketing strategy. 
    • Familiarity with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, Snapchat, YouTube, Flickr, Tumblr and emerging social media channels 
    • Proficient in Microsoft Excel and Word. 

    Requirements
     
    • Available to work 30 hours per week in summer and 15 hours per week in the fall and spring semesters and, preferably, also during intersession. 
    • Incoming sophomore or junior preferred as our goal is for the student to work with our office through their senior year. With the breadth of duties involved in this position, ideally, we only turn over the position every two to three years. 

    NOTE: This is a paid internship and, in the past, has qualified for credit (dependent on faculty approval) 

    Students interested in the position can send their resume, along with a cover letter, and the name of a faculty member who will recommend you to marketing@scranton.edu by April 10.
