Welcome to Fall 2019, and in particular, Welcome to the Tippie Class of 2023! Today marks the start of classes with our biggest and best first year class ever. With over 500 new students joining as “direct admits,” Tippie will now have over 3000 enrolled students. Our goal is not to be big, but to be a great place to study and work. Together we create a great learning community, and we are glad you are here to be part of it.
New students have just been through days of orientation and heard lots of great tips. I’d like to add one more — reach out and ask questions of current students, whether they are your peer mentors, learning coaches, or just students in your class. You’ve joined a caring and inclusive community, and fellow Tippie students have a lot to offer from the mundane tip (where are the PBB bathrooms?) to the more complex advice (how could a first year student find a good on-campus job or internship?). We have many professional staff, including your advisor, who are excited to answer these questions, but connections with other students should be a routine part of your day-to-day learning. If you are unsure what to say, just introduce yourself and start asking questions like “where are you from?” or “what are you studying?”
Have a great first week of classes. On behalf of the faculty and staff, we are glad you are here and ready to get started!
The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in working on the web and to truly stand out, will have some experience growing an audience for a website, blog, or social media property. While each day will be different, responsibilities will include monitoring and completing change requests from a website ticketing system, proactively identifying areas of improvement for the website, providing help and assistance to content owners, and updating the website as needed. This work will develop and/or draw heavily on digital marketing, content strategy, content development, SEO, and accessibility literacies.
This is not a cookie-cutter position, and we’re not looking for cookie cutter candidates. With that said, we’d expect candidates for this position to either have some skills (or have an interest in developing skills) in the following.
Writing: You should be able to positively contribute to content quality on a story and content-intensive website. This may include proofing, maintenance, revision and/or (depending on interest and skill) writing web copy. Attention to detail is a must, and strong proofing skills are always in demand.
SEO: Be able to (or be interested in learning how to) optimize websites using on-page and off-page SEO tactics and strategies. We push the limits in some areas, and are capacity-constrained in others. You don’t have to be an expert coming into this position, but you should be interested in developing expertise as you grow in the position.
User Experience: Be an advocate for changes, improvements and enhancements necessary to ensure that site visitors have a positive experience interacting with our brand online.
Analytics: Understand the basics of how Google Analytics can be used to report on site KPIs and reveal opportunities for improvement.
Digital Marketing: Understand the basics of how a website functions and contributes in a digital marketing ecosystem consisting of ads, other websites, automation, email, social media and elements of the modern martech stack.
Team Player: We work hard, move fast, and play well together. The ideal candidate will be interested in being part of team.
Successful candidates can come from a number of majors and with a number of interests. If you have a background or interest in business, marketing, journalism, English, communications, web development, content marketing or audience development, we want to talk with you. Alternatively, if your background is elsewhere but you can explain why this position is actually a great fit for you, tell us why.
