Project Management for Community Events Platform
PortlandTalksCategory: New Media
Duration of Position: 2 months
I'm looking for a part-time intern for PortlandTalks. The site -- which collects lectures and other education-based event from around the city, -- went live a few months ago and has been growing steadily since. But I'll be leaving for New York and am looking for someone to get involved from pdx.
The project is still in its early stages, but I'm open to a future revenue or equity agreement for the right candidate after the initial trail period.
The ideal candidate will posses strong writing skills, an interest in lectures and events happening around Portland, and a deep understanding of how to cultivate and build out a social media (Facebook & Twitter) presence. This may be a good opportunity for a undergrad or grad student in PR/Communications, Journalism and/or Business, as you'll be learning how to publish on a WordPress site, and use a multitude of techniques to build relationships and drive traffic to our content.
Besides occasional meetings, all work will be done wirelessly, with an expected 3-6 hours of work a week. Responsibilities include but are not limited to: updating events, corresponding with sponsoring organizations, curating the Featured Talks section, laying out the weekly newsletter, and updating event info on our social media channels. I'm also fine with this being an afternoon/weekend project for someone wanting to gain experience while juggling a full-time job.

Please email your resume and a brief, two paragraph introduction, as well as links to all social media accounts you feel comfortable sharing. Feel free to send links to writing clips and blogs.

We try to post jobs and internships as they come in, but in some cases we post them once a week on Sunday evening or Monday morning. Job postings are removed after about 30 days. Internship postings are generally considered permanent (we'll try and re-verify them every year). Some positions listed may already be filled.
No attempt has been made to verify any of the information in any of the job postings. J-JOBS is a free service to the journalism community by the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California at Berkeley.
