We are looking for an energetic newshound with a passion for all things social to support us in growing our social media traffic. Do you love Slate? Do you have clear and snappy writing skills along with an innate understanding of how to get people to share things? Are you comfortable quickly whipping up sharable graphics in Photoshop? Have you ever made something go viral? Then you might be the right person for us. An active personal social media presence and one to two years experience running institutional social media feeds are strong pluses.
I am making a note of this both because the job looks interesting, but also because in my new position as social media editor for the Union, I want to make sure I cover all basis and have a complete and full understanding of what this position is and how I should handle it.
