Position Description: The Solar Energy Industries Association is looking for skilled writer who is passionate about renewable energy and looking to refine his/her skills managing social media platforms and creating online content. This internship will be focused on writing for the web -- translating technical and often wonky language for a general audience.
Successful applicants will have a background in communications, journalism, public relations, new media, or marketing. Passionate and Internet-savvy advocates with policy backgrounds are also encouraged to apply. It's helpful but not necessary for you to be familiar with solar energy technology, markets, or policy. You should be exceptionally organized, a great writer, and have some solid social media experience (though we don't expect professional experience).
Duties will include assisting our digital media team in monitoring, engaging with and responding to solar energy discussions on social networks; tracking industry events, policy activity, and SEIA announcements; working with the digital media team to plan and implement our social media strategy; working with various departments to identify opportunities to promote SEIA and the organization's products and services.
Compensation: A transportation stipend is available.
To apply, please submit a cover letter, resume, and writing sample to email@example.com with the subject “Social Media Internship.”
