We are seeking a UVic undergrad student with social media and marketing acumen to manage our Facebook page, suggest strategy, and direct paid advertising on the platform.
We’re an international network that studies borders, based at UVic, Centre for Global Studies, primarily under Prof. Emmanuel Brunet-Jailly’s leadership. We’ve secured substantial funding from SSHRC and other sources and we publish a wide variety of materials (reports, articles, books) and undertake a variety of academic activities (conferences, seminars, webinars, summer institutes, courses). We lack time and expertise to justly promote what we do. We have so far insufficiently leveraged Facebook to get our high-quality products ‘out there’.
We want to increase traffic to our Facebook page. We want effective advertising campaigns on Facebook. We want a Facebook button integrated to purchasing print editions of our publications or to other activities we undertake.
Contact: Michael J. Carpenter, firstname.lastname@example.org
