LAMP Hiring a Fall 2021 Intern

Thursday, August 12, 2021

  • Fall 2021 semester (with possible extension)
  • 5-10 hours per week
  • $12.50 per hour

The Liberal Arts and Management Program (LAMP) is seeking an engaged, energetic and curious student from either of our programs (M+HO major or Honors Certificate) to intern for the fall and possibly spring semester.

The intern will assist the faculty and staff with a variety of tasks, including:

  • Planning for, executing, and following-up on virtual and in-person events with students, faculty, staff, prospective students, alumni, and community members
  • Creating and publishing content on our website and social media channels
    • Content includes but is not limited to student features, alumni features, faculty and class profiles, marketing materials, newsletters, alumni mailings, and semi-regular social media posts
  • Continuing to develop our alumni communications strategy through data collection, outreach, and events
  • Assisting LAMP staff with daily operations as needed
  • Working with our Student Advisory Board in their social programming and advising role

 Skills you can learn and take with you:

  • Customer Relationship Management software (we use Salesforce and Marketing Cloud)
  • Writing and interviewing experience
  • Social media content creation and management
  • Event ideation, planning, management, and follow-up within budgetary constraints.
  • Promotional item inventory, brainstorming, ordering and budgeting
  • Interpersonal skills from communicating with our students, staff, faculty, campus partners, alumni, parents, and community
  • Recruiting new students, brainstorming strategy, creatively executing plans, and providing analysis
  • Much more!

Experience with writing, graphic design, and video production preferred but not required. The ability to write well (in your classes and/or previous work) is crucial to flourishing in this role, as many of your tasks will require internal and external emails, web content, and internal records. Students with minimal experience but an excited-to-learn attitude are welcome to apply. A student with writing, media, and graphic design experience would be excellent addition to the team, but of course those skills can be learned quickly and with assistive technology. The student intern will have some flexibility in defining goals and interests and scope of their work, in discussion with the LAMP staff. The intern will work most directly with our Program Coordinator, but will often interface and assist our Director and Associate Director, and will get to know our Advisor.

Interested students should direct questions to LAMP@iu.edu. Application materials will include a resume, cover letter and writing sample addressed to Professor Rebecca Spang and submitted to LAMP@iu.edu. Review of applications will begin on August 30th and may continue until the position is filled. Strong preference for applicantions received before the August 30th deadline.
