Digital Content Production Intern
Life in Motion Guide is looking for an organized, independent, creative content producer to join the team for the summer. As a Digital Content Production Intern, you’ll work with the founder to help tell the Life in Motion Guide story and change the way families make end-of-life plans and decisions.
You’ll be responsible for bringing your creativity to your work as you create, publish, and promote cross-platform digital content.
You’ll get hands-on experience, individualized mentoring, and actual money. Not a lot of it, but still: this is a paid internship for current college students working towards their degree in TV Production, Communications, Journalism, Media, or Marketing/PR.
You’re confident in your ability to learn, don’t mind asking for help when you need it, and are eager to collaborate on strategy.
A day in the life…
Your first responsibility will be to plan and coordinate a photo/video shoot.
After that, we’ll strategize together how best to translate our ideas across all marketing channels; video, print, digital, social and everything in between.
- Digital publication experience including audio, video, and photo editing.
- Content production skills to create, publish, and promote cross-platform digital content including text, audio, video, still photography, etc.
- Strong writing skills
- A relentless drive to learn new skills
- A willingness to take on any task large or small (no coffee runs, though!)
- Unrestricted work authorization
This is a seed-stage startup. We’ll work together in an office in downtown Chicago or “in the field” once or twice a week. You’ll work remotely the rest of the time (with tons of messaging and talking in between.) I can’t offer a ping pong table and dozens of new friends, but I can offer a unique learning opportunity. I’ve spent two years laying the groundwork for the work you’ll do, so you will be well-positioned to generate measurable results and marketable skills quickly.
If this excites you, I want to hear from you! Send me your resume (and transcripts, too, if they’re handy) via email to karen at lifeinmotionguide.com.
P.S. Please don’t stress about a cover letter. If you can tell me in one paragraph what intrigues you about this position, do it! Otherwise, I promise to look at and respond (however briefly) to every resume I receive.
