Psyched about AJ+? Then you’re the type who knows there’s always more to the story. Here’s more to ours: the AJ+ Fellowship Program.
We’re on the hunt for six seriously stellar young people from around the globe to make up our first class of AJ+ Fellows.
It’s a one-year gig, it’s paid, and it’s an opportunity unlike anything else, an opportunity to be at the heart of the next generation of storytellers. Throughout the year, you’ll work with and learn from our core AJ+ team. You’ll join us in our adventure as we introduce AJ+ to the world, and you’ll be a valuable part of making sure this introduction unfolds with fireworks.
But before we get into it further, let’s see if you’re AJ+ Fellow material
Does this sound like you?
You’re passionate about empowerment and a wizard on social media. You’re on top of all the big news stories, but you’re just as sharply tuned in to the micro-conversations happening across your region that aren’t making headlines.
You can identify and effectively interact with a range of influencers across your region. You can write a punchy tweet, and you can engage people in and help drive a substantive conversation online. Plus, you can crack a joke now and then.
You don’t need a PhD or decades of experience. You don’t even need a gazillion Twitter followers. But you do have to be downright obsessed with the news and trends in your region and — just as importantly — with the pursuit of unearthing untold stories. You’ll also ideally have some experience under your belt that shows us you can do the job, whether that’s activism, reporting, blogging or something else altogether.
You’ll spend 2-3 weeks with us in San Francisco, then head back home and work remotely from there.
But don’t think ‘working from home’ means kicking back. For your entire region, you’re our eyes and ears on the ground, and you’ll be in daily contact with us here in San Francisco. This is full-time and full on. It’s also an incredible opportunity to sharpen skills, work with a brilliant team, and be in a position that permits you to empower and give voice to others.
