Alumni Communications Manager at Brown University

Strong writing, editing and social media skills would make you a good fit, especially if you’re on top of the ever-changing trends in the communications and social media fields. You’ll need 3-5 years of experience or an equivalent education/experience combo to land this position.

Other skills that would make you a strong candidate: marketing know-how, experience with preparing and sending HTML e-mail messages using broadcast email software, and proficiency using Adobe’s suite of web development tools. And if you know a thing or two about web metrics and analytics, be sure to mention it!
