Are you the person we seek? Can you offer assistance with the digital media and marketing projects at Zoellner Arts Center? We have an internship that supports arts@Lehigh, the information agency that promotes what’s happening in the arts on campus and in the local community. Honestly, this is one of the most fun jobs you’ll ever have. You’d be missing out on a chance of a lifetime if you didn’t apply.
The position is a non-paid, part-time internship and can be credit based with a time commitment of 15 hours per week. It could also be available for work study for 10 hours per week. We even have more than one position available. We’re flexible like that.
Assist in the creation and implementation of marketing strategy and tactics for an assortment of programs and activities in the Zoellner Arts Center, including but not limited to Guest Artist series, Notations, Film Series, Music Department, Department of Theatre, LUArt Galleries, Art Architecture and Design Department, and multiple student clubs and groups. What? You thought the arts weren’t a big deal at Lehigh? Come join the team and learn how amazing they are! If you don’t know how to do these tasks:
- Perform social media market research – and share your insights.
- Collect and analyze marketing data to develop and adjust marketing plans – because we know your perspective has more value to add than just ours alone.
- Assist in the creation of social media activity reports – we like gifs.
- Maintain good client relations through professionalism in all functions of customer service. Just take cues from us. We’re always professional – even when we answer the phone after taking a bite of a thick peanut butter sandwich.
- Contribute to arts@Lehigh, blogs (yup, we have a couple), Facebook, Instagram, SnapChat, YouTube Channel, and Twitter pages. Maybe even a little YikYak. Are you Red Canoe?
- Perform other duties as requested – We promise you won’t need to get coffee, or hang our coats. We’re not Miranda Priestly, or anything.
- We may ask you to comment on our wardrobe if we are trying too hard to be nerdy hipster cool.
… we’ll teach you how through practical application. We don’t just read about it – we do it!
