Digital Intern

 

LET’S TALK ABOUT YOU

You believe that good public policy leads to better lives. You know that an engaged an informed citizenry was as important in the 1700’s as it is today. And you understand that the freedom movement needs innovative programming to appeal to more than just the wonks.

Reclaim New York is looking for someone like you. We seek a Digital Intern that is interested in learning about the core processes of a non-profit digital effort. The internship requires a minimum of 20 hours per week, at Reclaim headquarters. Because of a dumb New York law that restricts freedom – you must be a degree-seeking student for this position.

You should have ridiculously strong organization abilities. You should be comfortable with platforms such as Google Analytics and Twitter. You should be a rock star at finding information online so quickly that our heads will spin. You must be creative. Your goal is to turn and daily news stories into clicks, likes, and shares. Make that new tax or freedom overreach by the government into content people want to engage with.

WHO WE ARE

Since our public launch in 2015, Reclaim has grown quickly across the state. Through a network of citizen owners, Reclaim is helping families understand the impact New York’s affordability crisis has on your bottom line.

It’s now time to pair strong programming with an even stronger digital operation.
