Attention Media and Professional Communications Majors,
Pitt’s Global Studies Center (GSC) seeks an intern (graduate or undergraduate), for the fall semester (fall 2017), who will help with the various publicity, publications, and social/digital media produced by the Center. The intern will have the opportunity to create social media posts, write and edit public relations copy, and produce digital and hard-copy publicity materials for a variety of events, all with an international and educational focus. As the GSC intern, the student will also attend innovative events to gather content and interview people for articles, which will be featured in GSC publications.
The internship position will require excellent written and oral communication skills, with an emphasis on writing in a consistent voice and tone reflective of GSC’s mission, to better promote and bring awareness to our multi-faceted goals. Interns will also be required to have knowledge of creating online content for social media and websites, along with an understanding of how to write public relations copy for a variety of audiences and purposes and to design eye catching and innovative fliers. Ideally, the GSC intern will also have a working knowledge of Adobe InDesign and SEO (search engine optimization), though these skills are not required. The internship will require 10-15 hours per week and students can earn 3 credits if they take the corresponding internship course or they can receive tuition remission.
Students are requested to go to http://www.ucis.pitt.edu/global/content/global-studies-student-ambassador-fellowship-and-gsc-internships to submit an application. (Please note the deadline has been postponed) and they should send links of their work or copies of flier created to Elaine Linn at firstname.lastname@example.org
