Nurturing America is in the process of creating an interactive website and is in need of copywriters/content developers. Web content development is the process of researching, writing, gathering, organizing, and editing information for publication on web sites. Web site content may consist of prose, graphics, pictures, recordings, movies or other digital assets that could be distributed by a hypertext transfer protocol server, and viewed by a web browser.Online content can take many forms, including plaintext, links, database content, still images (illustrations, photographs, diagrams), animation, audio, video, interactive devices (forms, forums, chat rooms, polls, questionnaires, etc.). The main responsibility of the content developer will be for the creation or acquisition of verbal content (primarily textual but also audio), although a close relationship with other media specialists, such as graphic designers, will almost certainly be required.
The quality of a website content can mean the difference between grabbing the reader’s attention and losing their interest. It can also impact the search engine rankings, determining whether information-seekers will initially find us in a search.Therefore, we are seeking interns to convey Nurturing America's vision/mission into an interactive website that will grab the reader’s attention, and create a platform for the world to express their concerns regarding social injustice, while simultaneously invoking changes for our society!
