TRCommons Team Openings
Note: None of these roles are mutually exclusive—you could potentially take on one or more of these roles, though leadership in a particular area is a plus.
Content Editors: Already a daily reader of the TRCommons? Why not join our content editorial team, giving you a chance to highlight particularly noteworthy content on the frontpage and featured sections. It’s your job to sift through the deluge and bring content. Additional responsibilities include fostering discussion through comments and identifying new forms of interaction with the community that could improve upon the site’s basic mission.
Marketing & Outreach: Thrive on interaction? Masterful communicator of ideas? The TRCommons is looking for individuals with a drive for getting the word out, conventionally (posters, flyers, tabling, word-of-mouth, and whatever crazy stunts you might come up with) but also on the web (twitter, Facebook, newsletters) as we seek to engage our community and bring new individuals and groups into the fold!
Technical Expertise: CompSci major? Have any interest in content management systems (ie WordPress)? Prior coding experience (PHP, CSS), an interest in online media preferred. With the continual cycle of website design and administration, the TRCommons team seeks one or two individuals to help translate new feature ideas into realities, in addition to identifying possible drawbacks and limitations with our current site.
Podcast Contributors: Love to gossip? How radio-ready is your voice? If the prospect of sitting down for an hour a week, discussing a diverse array of issues—from NQR’s cancellation to the intervention in Libya to why you think the iPad will flop—with an enthusiastic group of individuals excites you, that’s pretty much the only requirement!
Bloggers: As always, if you have even the slightest inkling that a blog might be the appropriate mouthpiece for your ideas and opinions, why not give it a try and sign up now (http://trcommons.org/register)? There’s no obligations or strings attached, so you can write as frequently as suits you. You can even syndicate your current blog over in an automated process that lets you keep blogging the way you do now, but with the added bonus of a wider community of readers and engagement!
