Los Angeles
Semester: 
Spring 2016
Unpaid: 
Yes

Inavizion Media is a Los Angeles based studio specializing in over-the-top (OTT) content. We believe the future of entertainment is on the web - therefore the curation of a broad array of OTT content is a must in the new-media age.

We recently launched our first web series and the social media strategy that goes with it has become quite vast, with many moving and evolving parts.

Internship Duties: 

We are searching out an intern with a diverse experience palette. Proficiency with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube expected. However, more than just button mashing is preferred.

We want to help drive your growth in the social media field which has become more important to a company's success than advertising through terrestrial and print platforms.

Yes, we want and expect you to help us grow our fan-base and viewership by actively posting, commenting and monitoring our many social media accounts - but we also want you to show initiative and bring forward-thinking to the table. No idea is a dumb idea, no suggestion gets waved away without discussion - rarely is there a strategy in social media not worth a beta test.

***BONUS***
- If you can write or want to learn to write then you can curate content for our blog.
- If you want to learn how to set up red-carpet/media events (clearly available only to those that can get to LA) then you can be involved with our productions.

We have a plethora of opportunities that can be discussed outside your primary responsibilities within our social media management program once basic parameters have been met.

We are curating content. You can become a driving force in it's growth and gain invaluable experience that future employers will covet.

If we need to tell you or remind you the qualities below are essential then we may not be a good fit for you:

Detail oriented, time management skills, self-motivator, creative thinker, deadline driven, strength to disagree, common sense, online decorum, proper grammar, writing, copy editing - I think you get the idea.

You can be located anywhere in North America.

10-20 hours a week (depending on duties and analytic achievement)

College credit in lieu of financial compenasation
