Digital Media Internship

Posted on January 2nd, 2012

What is Off The Quad? Off The Quad is an emerging digital lifestyle publication that delivers unique localized content to students specifically about their campus. Simply put, OTQ provides exclusive access to the gotta-know info and best-of happenings going down in college towns.

Off The Quad is providing an opportunity for Colorado State University students to write about the lifestyle and entertainment subjects that they know and enjoy the most, for one of the coolest (at least we think so) digital publications around. This is also a chance to write for a fun, fast-growing company with future opportunities to advance — and to get academic credit and payment for doing it.

The ideal candidate will have knowledge of student life in Fort Collins and a wit when describing it. The ideal candidate will be in the know about popular local trends and will have an eye for all things cool, a gift of language, and a keen knowledge of service journalism. He or she will also be positive, detail-oriented, enthusiastic, and organized.

Responsibilities:
· Represent the Off The Quad brand at Colorado State University
· Assume responsibility for providing Colorado State University oriented content — from finding great topics to determining how best to present them to executing that vision
· Manage a network of contacts, business owners, and tipsters to source and develop new topics regularly
· Work regularly with Managing Editor to refine and develop voice, style, and content
· Other duties as assigned

Qualifications:
· Firm understanding of the Off The Quad mindset and voice
· Witty sense of humor
· Excellent time-management and organizational skills, plus a high comfort level with deadlines
· Enthusiastic self-starter; impervious to writer’s block
