Project Description

Our team manages the main social media channels for the entire Department of Veterans Affairs. As a writer with the Digital Media Engagement team, you will be helping us share stories about Veterans and the amazing things they do.

As our audience represents a national-level audience, one of your tasks will be to review the social media accounts of various field offices to find content that will be usable at a national level. Then you will begin the process of rewriting that content, adding relevant hashtags and Instagram handles and ensuring images are converted to proper size for Instagram.

Our team uses Salesforce Social Studio to schedule content for our social media channels. You will be given an account on our Salesforce Social Studio platform and will be trained in how to use it in order to schedule social content. This will be valuable experience to add to your repertoire and will be a tremendous help to the VA and to Veterans.
