Marketing and Social Media Intern

Founder's Hall at Girard College -- Marketing and Social Media Intern

Please see instructions on how to apply at the bottom of this page.

A current priority of Founder’s Hall as a museum, and Girard College (a residential school for economically disadvantaged children grades 1-12) as its parent institution, is to share history of the school and its founder, Stephen Girard, more broadly and encourage visitors to come on campus and visit the museum at Founder’s Hall. Founder’s Hall is a nationally significant example of Greek Revival architecture that contains outstanding art and historical collections from the 18th-20th centuries documenting the history of both Stephen Girard and the College.

To further this goal, the Marketing/Social Media Intern will create a database of past and current partnership efforts and create a competitive advertising binder. They will also develop the museum’s social media posts for Instagram and Facebook.

The Intern will also participate in the general life of the museum, including assisting with tours, learning about object handling, developing written and graphic materials, attending meetings, etc. To get hands-on work with the collection, the Intern will undertake a cataloguing project to document a set of un- or under-catalogued items, probably from the photographic collections; the objects will be determined based on the intern’s desires and the museum’s needs.

Projects Include:
- Create a database of past and current partnership and advertising efforts
- Promote visitation to Founder’s Hall and Girard College
- Develop Founder’s Hall’s social media presence and activity
