Arlington Independent Media (AIM) has an opening for a Communications Coordinator to help us serve a large and growing group of independent media producers in the Washington, D.C. metro area. The right candidate will be an excellent writer and editor and will have experience creating and posting multi-media content to the Web. Candidates with a proven ability to use social media to build and promote an organization will have an advantage. Only those with a strong desire and ability to show initiative, work under deadlines, and manage multiple projects will be considered.
Our mission is to provide the public with access to established and emerging media. We operate a newly renovated, state-of-the-art training, programming and production facility that includes a TV studio, editing suites, classrooms, and remote production equipment. We reach out to diverse communities within the metro area to make certain that their voices are being heard. We train hundreds of students of all ages each year in the art and science of media production and we conduct seminars and workshops in advanced topics in media literacy and analysis. We were named in June 2012 as America’s best local media center for the eighth time in the last 22 years.
We are located on the Orange Line Metro in the Clarendon section of Arlington. The position is full time and will be offered in the mid-$30’s to start with complete benefits including a fully paid health plan. We value enthusiasm as much as experience. We are looking for a highly motivated person to help us design and implement a communications plan that will attract new members, producers, and students, and will promote AIM to the Virginia, Maryland, and DC region.
