Journey through Jersey Social Media Intern

Friends of New Jersey Heritage, a 501c(3) non profit that supports the stewardship of New Jersey’s historic resources, is seeking a social media intern for Journey through Jersey, a new heritage tourism project initiated by the New Jersey Historic Trust.

The intern will assist with social media accounts including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. The Journey through Jersey website and complementary social media accounts were launched in February 2017 with the goal of encouraging more people to visit and engage with New Jersey’s historic sites. Responsibilities will include: researching, curating, and developing content to post across social accounts; tracking traffic/engagement levels; scheduling posts; increasing the number of followers; and creating new partnerships/collaborations with the Journey through Jersey brand. This is a great opportunity for students interested in marketing, communications, tourism, history, or historic preservation.

The expected time commitment is 15 hours/month, starting ASAP and continuing through the end of August. Most of the work can be done remotely, but there may be times when we would like to meet in person (we are based in Trenton). We can not offer compensation at this time, but we are happy to work with you to obtain course credit.

Please send a cover letter and resumé to info@journeythroughjersey.com with the subject “Social Media Intern” by April 17, 2017.
