Project Description

As a network, EducationUSA Germany has a Facebook account (FB: EducationUSAGermany), and will soon move to a mobile-friendly website coordinated through staff at the Public Affairs section at the U.S. Embassy. EducationUSA advising centers in Germany are part of the German-American Institutes/American Spaces which have their own web & social media. Intern would be working with Public Affairs staffer to produce factual content for these web & social media channels and revamp text-heavy information sheets/handouts. We want to tie (animated?!) images together to explain & promote concepts & resources with far less text. Think Canva & Prezi. Or, maybe you have an exciting tool you can recommend to us. Occasional opportunities for direct interaction with German students may arise - depending on center programming & your own interest. Not sure about your level of German? Our requirement is somewhat flexible, so don't hesitate to apply. Wir freuen uns schon auf die Zusammenarbeit!
