Student Union Webmaster Internship – Job Description
Student Union is looking for a Computer Science major (any class level) with a breadth of knowledge (or extensive curiosity) in web development to aid in maintaining and improving the Student Union website (su.wustl.edu) over the summer, with a possible extension into the fall semester. Some responsibilities will include:
- Creating email addresses for Student Union representatives
- Addressing trouble tickets from Student Union representatives
- Working with Student Union executives to improve current website functionality. For instance, restructuring the tagging on the blog, or revamping the search capabilities
- Working through a list of desired incremental changes from committee chairs and executives
- Developing a proposal for a summer project to improve website functionality, and executing it.
- Have you used the website before? If so, is there something that bugs you about it? How do you think it could most effectively be changed?
- Embedding social media applications
Many of these responsibilities present simple to intermediate implementation problems with which the intern can refine or learn implementation skills in the following web development areas:
Some basic knowledge of these development tools is a plus, but using the internship as an excuse to learn some of the above is perfectly fine! We just ask that you are highly motivated to learn. Knowledge of Student Union, current social networking, and human controller interfaces are a plus. Excellent communication skills are a must.
We expect that these responsibilities will take between 20 and 30 hours per week for 10-12 weeks during the summer. The start date is flexible, as are intermittent weeks off for vacationing.
Please submit your resume (pdf preferred) to Eliot Walker at email@example.com and fill out the short application found here: http://bit.ly/suwebmasterintern, by Sunday, May 2nd.
