If you are interested in joining a creative community with a strong support system, where you can learn marketing, social media strategy, design and build your resume in the creative field, then this might be the right fit for you.
The Digital Media Fellows are a group of creative digital storytellers who collaborate, and create content in a range of media types. At the heart of great content creation and marketing is technical expertise (which we will cover) but more importantly: story. Story is at the heart of effective brands, companies and communities. The role of the digital media fellows is to utilize digital media to create various forms of content centered around authentic, heartfelt, meaningful, funny, and emotionally compelling stories to create the most effective marketing possible to highlight all things Tufts Hillel. Fellows receive access to creative tools and resources, along with guidance and mentorship in creative strategy and content creation. In return, fellows proactively work individually and collectively on creative content for Tufts Hillel.
