If you spend your days perfecting your TikTok videos, maybe it’s time to get paid in more than just “likes.” Instead of waiting to accrue enough followers that your job consists of pushing content that legally requires the addition of the word “#ad,” come work for us and earn actual, tangible wages and build your real-life résumé by adding a solid bit of experience.
The Dallas Observer
is hiring a social media intern to produce and post original content for our social media channels. We’re (absolutely) not looking for the next Addison Rae (hell no), but yours will be the online face of the company, so a friendly one will work just fine.
We’re looking for someone with a strong presence to produce and promote content in line with the Observer
’s to complement our coverage.
The likely candidate has prior experience with establishing and building a following, is adept at creating relevant and engaging content, and is able to identify and contribute to social media trends. The ideal
candidate will also have a background in journalism or marketing, keep up with local arts, music, events and businesses and have authoritative opinions on who actually has the best late-night tacos.
Send your résumé, cover letter (or even better, a short video essay) and links to your personal or professional social media channels to music and culture editor Eva Raggio
. But no DM follow-ups, please — we're looking for someone who knows how to keep good social media etiquette.
