If you’re a current QUT undergraduate student looking for a unique opportunity to share your university journey and the story of how you ended up at QUT, now is the time to apply to become a Digital Ambassador!
We’re looking for a few students from all study areas who enjoy photography, writing, drawing, interviewing, graphic design, filmmaking or blogging. You’ll be paid to create content that will be published on QUT’s social media accounts (such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube), as well as on our blogs — Student Sharehouse and Student Life in Brisbane.
This isn’t your typical casual job – ultimately you decide when you want to work, and how you fit it in with your other commitments. The Digital Ambassador role is a paid position, with pay based on the style and format of content you create. We expect that you will contribute content a couple of times a month.
We encourage creativity and are looking for photos, videos, drawings, infographics, blog posts, short clips, interviews, (or a combination of these) to show prospective students what uni life is like at QUT.
How to apply
To apply for this position, you will need to submit a written application, outlining why you would like to become a Digital Ambassador, and express why you’d be suitable for the role. Please let us know if you are domestic or international student, what course you are studying, and what year of study you are in.
You’ll also need to submit an example of creative work that describes how you transitioned into uni life at QUT (whether you went in straight after high school, took a gap year, worked before studying at QUT etc.). Your creative work can be one of the following:
- a blog post (200-300 words in length) with one original image included
- a series of four Instagram posts (images and/or videos) with captions
- a short video, no longer than 30 seconds
If you already have or contribute to public social media accounts (e.g. a blog, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, YouTube channel, etc), please provide links to your presences. The content does not need to be relevant to your role as a Digital Ambassador, but should be appropriate to share with a prospective employer.
If this sounds like something you’re interested in being a part of, submit your application to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business (5pm) on Friday, March 18.
