Aggie Voices Blog and Social Media Writing Internship

Gunrock invites all students to submit posting for the Aggie Voices blog

Aggie Voices

Aggie Voices, a UC Davis blog, gives prospective and current students an inside look at life on campus and in the surrounding Davis community.

The blog aims to capture an array of personal experiences, from participation in campus activities and inspiring classes to advice about navigating campus life.

In addition to attracting new students to the UC Davis community, Aggie Voices works to share student accomplishments and upcoming student-led activities within the UC Davis community.

The ultimate goal is to showcase genuine student viewpoints and the uniqueness of UC Davis to potential applicants, their parents and the community.

We are looking for interns interested in writing reflective, funny, engaging, clear, and concise posts for an audience of prospective and current college students.

Candidates should approach the internship with an open mind, willing to learn about writing in new forms and incorporating images and other multimedia into their posts.

Ideal candidates will have some familiarity with Tumblr, the blogging platform for the site as well as other social media sites.

Interns in our program will work directly with Jenae Cohn, Sharon Knox, and the Student Affairs Marketing and Communications team to maintain the blog.

Responsibilities:

  • Pitch, write, and edit posts for Aggie Voices and social media.
  • Brainstorm new and innovative ways to communicate about UC Davis.
  • Bring a student perspective for better audience engagement.
  • Promote blog on social media outlets.
  • Complete projects by deadlines.

To apply, email internship coordinators Jenae Cohn, Sharon Knox and Nefretiri Cooley-Broughton a cover letter and resume.
