Help us increase awareness about public health and worker safety

The Rutgers School of Public Health’s Center for Public Health Workforce Development is looking for a Communications Intern who is eager to hit the ground running and use social media to shed light on the work we do and the issues we care about. This role will involve researching, creating, and managing posts for Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, and LinkedIn. We are looking for someone excited to use these platforms and create substantive content that appeals to — and educates – our viewers.

We’re also eager to expand our existing audiences (mainly working professionals) to include younger students with summer jobs, those who are working part-time while attending school, and those about to start their careers.

The Intern will be asked to review prior social media content to see what has and has not been effective, define targeted populations to reach, and research their content preferences. We would like to see a strategy for growth, directions for future content, and a plan for tracking various performance metrics.

We are looking for someone who is enthusiastic about social media and public health communications.  Creativity, a high attention to detail, and excellent writing skills are also essential. Applicants should be attuned to social media trends and proficient with the tools necessary to create compelling content.

To apply, please submit a resume, cover letter, and samples (screenshots are acceptable) of prior professional/academic social media content. Please include explanations of the content, how/why it was created, and what objectives were achieved.

This internship is up to 10 hours per week with flexible hours; however, it does require 3 – 4 hours in the Somerset office on most weeks, with the remaining time remote. The position is unpaid but available for course credit.
