Description

Everlasting Footprint is a digital platform and social networking site dedicated to preserving everyday people's life stories and legacies, and celebrating the lives of those who have passed away. Please visit the website to learn more about the Founders, the mission, and how the social network works:

You can also visit any of our published Footprints as examples of the work that we do, including:
Steve Jobs’ Footprint: http://www.everlastingfootprint.com/stevejobs
Amy Winehouse’s Footprint: http://www.everlastingfootprint.com/amywinehouse

Depending on the assignment completed and the quality of the individual’s work, our interns may be given named credit (a “byline”) for their writing if it is featured on our company blog. This is an opportunity for interns to establish not only future reference contacts, but usable portfolio material as well. We will also be interested in screening interns for future paid positions as Staff Writers and Assistant Editors.

Interns will not need to travel, and will report to our managing editor via email two to three times per week. Interns will be expected to work at least 20 hours per week. This position will turn into full time if mutual fits exist.

Interns with Everlasting Footprint will be asked to perform a variety of tasks for the site, including but not limited to:

- Posting on the company’s social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, and Wordpress

- Researching search engine optimization (SEO) keyword data for the purposes of article and blog writing. Researching data for celebrities on social networks and Google Analytics.
- Drafting, contributing to, or editing short stories (approximately 300 words apiece) for
celebrities or other persons of interest, as assigned
- Collecting photos or video links, or researching for additional information about photos and videos. Some amateur photo editing may be required, which could be completed using software available to students on FSU’s campus (such as Adobe Photoshop). No video editing will be necessary or required of interns.
- Monitoring of news networks and sites for pertinent information for blog and website publication
