The University of Notre Dame (ND.jobs) is accepting applications for a Communications Intern (Summer 2020).
Applications will be accepted until 3/17/2020.
The Pulte Institute for Global Development, part of Notre Dame's Keough School of Global Affairs, is seeking an undergraduate student photographer / communications intern for summer 2020, primarily between the dates of June 15 and July 26.
The MWF is a prestigious, intensive six-week program centered around Leadership in Business. It features numerous events, site visits, community service days, and other trips to organizations in Indiana, Michigan, and Illinois. Applicants will have the opportunity to cover unique events that may take place during evenings and weekends.
Because of the fast-paced nature of the MWF, it will be vital for the intern to have a quick turnaround time in regards to taking photos, editing photos, and making them available for upload to the Pulte Institute's social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and occasionally Youtube). The intern will also be responsible for crafting social media posts using designated brand standards and uploading photos on a routine basis.
The MWF is one of the Pulte Institute's most popular and recognizable programs and one of its biggest drivers of social media engagement throughout the year, so the student in this position will play a critical role in the Pulte Institute's overall outreach efforts. Photos from the MWF will be used as B-roll in videos produced by the Pulte Institute, as well as its 2020 Annual Review and in other printed materials. In the past, photos from the MWF at Notre Dame have been used and promoted by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and the MWF implementing partner, Irex.
Qualified applicants who demonstrate interest in other communications work outside of photography (e.g., writing and editing; graphic design; social media management; videography) may have the opportunity to perform such work as part of this role. In particular, applicants with strong writing skills may have the opportunity to produce several feature stories throughout the duration of the MWF that will be published on the Pulte Institute home page and heavily promoted through social media.
Housing in the Notre Dame dorms throughout the duration of the MWF will be provided, unless the intern lives locally. If the intern requires airfare to travel to/from the internship, this can be provided.
Please note a portfolio of edited photos MUST BE submitted with your application, either through this form or in your resume.
Minimum Qualifications: Must have at least one year of demonstrated experience with photography.
Must have at least one year of demonstrated experience with photo editing, including the use of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, or equivalent software (GIMP, Affinity, Darktable, etc.).
Must have experience with social media management.
Preferred Qualifications: Applicants with journalism experience, including news and feature writing, will be given special consideration.
The ideal candidate will possess an interest in international cultures and working with people from diverse backgrounds.
