[This letter was recently sent to the SJU English department.]
My name is Emily Goldblum, an assistant managing editor at Odyssey. I’m reaching out to you because I have a wonderful internship opportunity for students at St. John’s.
We are hoping to launch a branch of Odyssey at St. John’s. Odyssey is a social content platform built out of local communities who share their opinions with a national audience, garnering over 20 million visitors per month. Odyssey flips the content industry on its head, giving our writers the freedom to engage with their network.
We are currently at over 300 campuses across the country, such as NYU, Penn State and Temple to name a few, where we curate content from thought leaders in local communities. We are looking to hire an Editor-In-Chief as well as a staff of 15 writers to start from your school.
This would be a great way for students to gain leadership experience as well as begin to develop an online portfolio. If you know of any students who might be interested in this opportunity, please direct them to this link to apply: http://www.theodysseyonline.com/apply
If you have any questions or would like further information, I am more than happy to discuss Odyssey with you!
Thanks so much. I look forward to hearing back from you soon!
