Have Federal Work Study? Apply to Join Our Editorial Team for Fall 2023

The Digital Media and Journalism and Communication departments are looking for an Editorial Assistant to the Department Advisor. As an editorial assistant you will help with writing and maintaining our blogs, designing newsletters, posters and fliers and posting to social media. You will also help maintain spreadsheets, send emails and announcements and other clerical/administrative work. 

We are looking for students with excellent writing, editing and design skills. You must be able to write short blog posts, emails, announcements, etc. and design posters, social media posts and newsletters. Attention to detail is a must. Experience with Canva, Instagram, WordPress and Google Sheets (or Excel) is preferred.

You can apply for this position as either a work study student or for internship credits (although if you seek internship credits, preference is given to students who have done prior internships for credit and completed the seminar.) The position begins at the start of the Fall 2022 semester. It’s a great opportunity to hone your writing and design skills and learn how to use them strategically.

Please submit your resume and a writing sample to Amy Witkus, Administrative Assistant at witkusa@newpaltz.edu
