Do you carry your I-Phone or Blackberry everywhere you go? Do you love to read status updates and tweets when you’re bored? Are you curious about what’s going on in your community and the world? Does writing a creative sentence excite you? Can you work under pressure when the tough gets going? If so, the City of Brooklyn Park is looking for you!
The city’s communications coordinator is looking for a highly motivated college student or recent graduate to be her assistant. This is NOT a typical entry-level position where you just observe and file documents. You will get hands-on experience and will be a critical member of city communications team. The position duties would include: being the city’s official webmaster and editor of the very popular employee newsletter, handling media relations questions and feature writing on some of the most interesting people and places in Brooklyn Park.
The journalism student currently in the position is graduating and leaving to pursue a public relations agency job in Washington, D.C. at the end of the month.
This 20 hour a week paid position does have flexible hours to accommodate class schedules and other part-time gigs, but does include some night and weekend work. For more information, go to the city’s website at www.brooklynpark.org/sitepages/pid30.php.
