Marketing/Social Media/Community Outreach position

We have participated in the PR intern program with BGSU for the last several years. We have been awarded a VISTA (Volunteers In Service To America) program for the upcoming year, beginning July. One of the roles that we are recruiting for is a Marketing/Social Media/Community Outreach position. This is a unique program for people to gain some professional experience. I will include our “job description” below. The living allowance isn’t great – only about $12,000 – but there are some other benefits. The members get a cash or education award upon completion of their service to pay off student loans or continue their education. They also get non-compete eligibility status for federal jobs for one year, so if someone is thinking about that as a career that’s an awesome path. These are full-times positions, but the member can go to school as long as it doesn’t interfere with their service.

In addition to this role, we are recruiting for a business operations VISTA. We have filled our opening for program evaluation.

Please share this as broadly as possible.

Thank you,
