JourneyThroughJersey-identity-v4-BDJourney through Jersey Social Media Internship 

Friends of New Jersey Heritage, a 501c(3) nonprofit that supports the stewardship of New Jersey’s historic resources, is seeking a social media intern for Journey through Jersey, an award-winning heritage tourism initiative launched by the New Jersey Historic Trust in 2017 with the goal of encouraging more people to visit and engage with New Jersey’s historic sites.

The intern will assist with Journey through Jersey’s social media accounts including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Responsibilities will include: researching, curating, and developing content; scheduling and tracking posts; increasing followers; and identifying potential partnerships and collaborations. This is a great opportunity for students interested in marketing, communications, heritage tourism, history, and/or historic preservation.

The expected time commitment is approximately 7 hours/week, with more time required in the beginning for training, research, and planning. The internship will run October 1 – January 15. Work can be done remotely, but there will be an in-person orientation at the beginning of the internship (location is flexible) and the intern will be expected to visit at least one Journey through Jersey site (and share the visit on social media!).

There is a stipend of $600 for this internship. We are happy to work with you to obtain course credit if necessary.

Please send a cover letter and resumé to info@journeythroughjersey.com with the subject “Social Media Intern” by September 28, 2018.
