I’ve been the social media manager at Duke for a little over a year now and constantly tell people that I have the best job at the university. I get to work with a stellar peer group of communicators and marketers, I am constantly challenged by new projects and I have a number of mentors across campus. The work is interesting and I wear many hats including admissions marketer, content manager, and university consultant.
All of this keeps me pretty busy. As part of an expanded social media and video production capacity at Duke, I’m looking for a social media fellow to support our good work in the Office of News and Communications. I promise it will be the second-best job at Duke.
Below is a short description of what we’re looking for.
The Office of News and Communications is hiring a full-time Social and Digital Media Fellow to support social media operations, reach out to target audiences through social media and produce short videos for news and other institutional purposes.
The position requires a proven record of being able to identify and report on stories, independently produce news-style reports within a few hours and use social-media tools effectively. This is a one-year fellowship with the option for ONC to extend the position for an additional year.
Strong journalistic writing skills, enthusiasm for new media, a collaborative spirit and a demonstrated ability to produce high-quality news material under tight deadlines required. To apply, please send your resume, three published story URLs and links to any online video publications to Maxine.Borjon@duke.edu.
