Strategic Communications Fellowship (San Francisco)
You love news, politics, and investigative reporting. You can’t tear yourself away from a great long-form story or a powerful tweetstorm. You know a killer interview when you see one. You’re a smart, hungry emerging professional determined to use your communication talent and skill to make a difference.
If this sounds right, you might be Mother Jones’ next strategic communications fellow. This fellow will work with Mother Jones’ communications strategist—in collaboration with staff across the organization—to build buzz for Mother Jones investigations and breaking news, increase our impact, and engage with our audience.
The communications fellow will assist in pitching television and radio appearances, building communication with key organizations and influencers, and identifying events and speaking opportunities for MoJo staff. He or she will help plan and promote Mother Jones events and test out new ways to engage with its readers, while also tracking Mother Jones’ impact and helping submit its journalism for prestigious awards.
This is a unique opportunity to learn and practice strategic communications, project management, and audience engagement skills while helping a major investigative reporting organization tell important stories and increase its impact.
