Web Content: Skilled Writers are an Essential Asset for Success
Slowly, every so slowly, web content editor and writer positions continue to expand in higher education. You can’t call the progress “inexorable” but each step in this direction is a victory for those who understand the importance of effective online engagement in marketing.
This position at Alma College isn’t new. Alma is replacing Amanda VanLente, who has left after several years of fine service.
More position descriptions like this are online at the blog. If you are trying for approval of a similar spot on your campus, perhaps these will help your effort.
