CALLING ALL POTENTIAL BLOGGERS

The School of Public Health Office of Career Services is looking for a group of student Volunteer Bloggers for the 2016-2017 academic year. As a Volunteer Blogger you will have the opportunity to become more involved with the School of Public Health, network with prominent employers and alumni, and showcase your writing skills in a professional and public forum. When employers are asked about career readiness skills they seek in potential candidates, written communication is a primary competency. Being a Volunteer Blogger will provide you with the opportunity to hone your writing abilities, highlight them on your resume, and ultimately provide strong writing samples published on the SPH Careers Blog. Additionally, if you are considering a position within the communications industry, the articles you write as a Volunteer Blogger will vastly expand your portfolio. Applicants do not, however, need to be pursuing careers in communications.

DESCRIPTION:

We are currently seeking 4-6 Bloggers that will be responsible for 2-3 article submissions per month. Deadlines for submissions will be set around each Blogger’s individual schedule.  All Volunteer Bloggers will also be expected to attend one 30 minute meeting per month to touch base on the current state of the blog and to present new ideas they may have for articles and guest contributors. Volunteer Bloggers can be undergraduate or graduate students from any major within the School of Public Health. No prior blogging experience required!

HOW TO APPLY:

As a Volunteer Blogger, you will be representing the Career Services Office, the School of Public Health, and Indiana University. It is essential that everything that is published on the blog be of the highest standards. Therefore, we ask that all interested candidates provide their resume and a sample blog post focusing on a career related topic that would demonstrate your writing ability and the tone you would bring to the SPH Office of Career Services blog.
