The Television Academy located in North Hollywood, California is looking for an Unpaid Social Media Intern in its Marketing Department.

We seek a talented Social Media Intern who loves TV and wants to help us tell the world about it – someone who is obsessed with social media and wants to learn how to shape and build a brand across these platforms.

This includes a heavy push during the summer Emmys season. You will get to work cross-functionally to leverage content on digital/social platforms. You’ll help engage our fan base and watch it grow to the climax of the awards broadcast!
