Public Affairs Section (PAS) Addis Ababa and USAID Ethiopia are launching a nation-wide PR campaign to highlight U.S. investments in Ethiopia. This campaign will be carried out through traditional media (television, radio, billboards) as well as social media. To supplement the campaign, PAS Addis plans to start a weekly series highlighting the Ethiopian diaspora in the U.S. on the embassy's Facebook page. In addition, the virtual intern would be involved in creating digital presentations and one-pagers on our Public Affairs programs and exchanges for our external youth audience, including on the EducationUSA, American Spaces, and Fulbright, Humphrey, and Mandela Washington Fellowship exchanges.
|Social media management|
Research and curate information on members of the Ethiopian diaspora in the U.S. Work with selected individuals to take or secure photos and/or videos and turn footage into bite-sized social media packages that highlight the contributions of Ethiopians in the U.S.
Additionally, the eIntern can support PAS by compiling news articles that might be of interest to our target audiences.
