Honors students really do well with us. Their humor and creativity make them outstanding candidates. And as you know, many of the honors students you have placed with us have gone on to do great things.

  • Our Video and Content students not only craft stories (including video content), but analyze performance.
  • Our Operations students collaborate to design and mature our information and measurement systems and information architecture in our best-of-class Social Media Management system (Sprinklr) uses it to analyze and report on UB’s impact in the social media landscape.

We prepare our students for careers in social media marketing and our past student assistants have gone on to have incredible experiences. In the last few years alone, our students have secured internships and jobs at global companies such as Hulu, Casper, The Smithsonian Institution and more.

The positions we are hiring for are as follows (see attached job descriptions for details):

  1. Social Media Content/Engagement Assistant
  2. Social Media Video Assistant
  3. [NEW] Social Media Operations Assistant

2019 STUDENT ASSISTANT OPPORTUNITY – SOCIAL MEDIA OPERATIONS ASSISTANT 2019 STUDENT ASSISTANT OPPORTUNITY – CONTENT AND ENGAGEMENT 2019 STUDENT ASSISTANT OPPORTUNITY – SOCIAL MEDIA VIDEO ASSISTANT

Please feel free to share with students or faculty members who would know of any stand-outs student to work with us as we continue to elevate our UB social media channel performance.
