Want to be involved but writing isn’t your thing? Are you an expert organizer? Does creating schedules make you deliriously happy?

There are many behind-the-scenes and administrative positions available at The Geek Girl Project. For thoroughness, all of our positions are listed, even those currently filled. If you have the interest and aptitude for one of those, we may still ask you to come on board as an assistant to that role, or to share it at some point. After all, everyone needs a vacation sometimes.

Content Editor

–        Either has experience with Word Press or has the ability to learn it.

–        Proof reading posts, verifying links and captions. Checks tags for search engine optimization.

–        Does final check and hits “post” button.

–        Notifies Social Media Editor of unscheduled posts.

Social Media Editor: 

–        Is familiar with the posting schedule so posts are shared in a timely manner.

–        Right now, our social media editor handles Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google+, and Pinterest. We’re particularly interested in someone who can optimize our presence on Instagram and Google+ as well as fill in the gaps on the other platforms as needed. If you’re an expert on a particular form of social media and would like to branch out, definitely ask!

Media Coordinator

In a nutshell, if it if involves talking to someone that’s outside the website’s staff, this is the media coordinator’s responsibility.

–        Builds up media contacts for writers & interviews to use to create website content.

–        Has access to the website creator’s existing data base as fodder to set up options for writers & interviewers

–        They are the person responsible for being in contact with the studios, publishers and anyone who writes to PRinbox@TheGeekGirlProject.com

–        After the coordinating editor sets up with staff internally to use any of the resources on PR inbox email account, the media coordinator is the one who communicate and coordinates with the studio, publisher, etc to get the review copy, or item that the website will review or use.

–        Works VERY closely with coordinating editor. As this position is a kind of conjoined twin situation with the coordinating editor; they MUST be able to be in constant and clear communication with the coordinating editor.

Note:

–        This position is NOT a paid position and is NOT a writing position.

–        This position is literally almost entirely building up a contact base and honing the skillset to do so. This is invaluable for anyone doing anything in the creative industries.

–        This position is ideal for someone who can organize well (as it takes an administrator / organizer mind) that is actually in the media (anything from comics to film to animation) and/or wants to extend their exposure in the media fields.

Resume use:

–        For anyone who wants to or is working as administration, marketing or PR in any kind of media or for any kind of media company.

Event Coordinator

–        Scans news of LA & OC events that would make good, unique and original reporting or stories.

–        Helps procure press tickets/passes for events. If a camera crew or a photographer is involved (usually for the larger conventions like Wondercon or San Diego Comic Con) they organize that group.

–        Organizes LA & OC events (sometime in the future).

–        Posts the press releases on the website.

–        This position MUST be an OC or LA local. It’s imperative to be in the area for the contacts that need to be built up. (In addition, there is a possible need for someone to perform this function in the Pennsylvania area as well to help coordinate the various cons and meet-ups.)

Note:

–        This position is NOT a paid position and is NOT a writing position.

–        This position is ideal for someone who can organize well (as it takes an administrator / organizer mind) that is actually in the media (anything from comics to film to animation) and/or wants to extend their exposure in the media fields.

Resume use:

–        For anyone who wants to or is working as administration, marketing or PR in any kind of media or for any kind of media company.

Coordinating Editor

In a nutshell if it involves internally organizing the staff of the website it is their responsibility.

–        Sets up who writes what, gives assignments and makes sure the writers get their assignments done and on time and over to the content editor and posted on the website.

o   This includes scheduling posts so our site ideally has fresh content daily.

o   This second bullet point is just to emphasize that this is a lot of work.

–        They scan the PR inbox, content and opportunities on a daily basis and communicate with Media Coordinator on which ones that the writers will use.

–        As this position is a kind of conjoined twin situation with the media coordinator, they MUST be able to be in constant and clear communication with the media coordinator.

Notes:

–        This is as much a writing position as it is an organizing position. The idea is that they will never need to write an article, but they will need to know how to write in order to work with the writers, and if anything needs to be done in a pinch, writing skills are necessary.

–        Copy editing skill IS NOT needed though. That’s literally the job of the content editor.

–        This position is location agnostic. As they are dealing with the staff internally online, they could be anywhere and do this job well.

–        It is imperative to understand that this website is not a writing club. It is a blog website with an intent for making it interesting for more than the staff to read. This may sound basic, but you’d be surprised.

–        Not a paid position

Resume use:

–        Excellent for anyone who wants to show administration skills in a writing world specifically or someone who wants to show administration skillsets in a general sense.

 

Thank you for your interest in this position and The Geek Girl Project in general. We look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you on this cause to promote Geek Girls!

Geekily,

Jonelle & Topher Davila
