People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 6.5 million members and supporters.

PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in the food industry, in the clothing trade, in laboratories, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of rodents, birds, and other animals who are often considered “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.

Your Mission: PETA is seeking a social-media strategist to contribute to our growing social-media presence across a variety of platforms, including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. PETA is a highly engaged advocacy organization that reaches more than 100 million people each month just through our Facebook pages.   What Your Day Will Look Like: • You will work with others on PETA's social-media team to create compelling content—both words and imagery—for PETA's various social-media sites. Content must be emotionally evocative and tell a story with minimal words and well-designed images. • Part of your day will be spent brainstorming with others to find ways to promote content effectively while meeting the goals of other departments (this takes some serious skill!) and advising on how to optimize online content for social media. Pretty much everything (as in animals' welfare) rides on how well our posts perform, so you will track and analyze the success of posts and tweets as well as overall engagement and growth. • Keeping our content fresh and trending is critical. You'll be expected to research current trends in social media, staying on top of things like the latest Internet obsession, and apply that knowledge to PETA's efforts. • Since social-media success depends on acting in real time, we post when the moment strikes (and on some occasions, the moment is 9 p.m. on Saturday night). • You'll work with various staff, such as PETA campaigners, to get photos optimized for online use. • You'll handle the grueling chore of using Instagram to share pics of cute dogs in the office and pinning pics of drool-worthy vegan food. You'll also be encouraged to eat said food when we have our epic vegan potlucks. • You'll also be expected to perform any other duties assigned by the supervisor.   Qualifications: • Minimum of two years of online marketing experience • Fluency in English, Spanish and Spanglish (speaking, reading, and writing) • Proven interest in and strong working knowledge of Latino culture • Demonstrated extensive knowledge of animal rights issues and PETA campaigns • Interest and ability to adapt to new technologies • Proven ability to conduct and analyze marketing research • Demonstrated exceptional written and verbal communication skills • Proven excellent project-management, organizational, strategic-thinking, and analytical skills • Demonstrated ability to work both independently and as part of a team • Proven ability to work well under pressure and within tight deadlines • Commitment to the objectives of the organization

Intern
Position Objective: As an advanced intern, you will strive to lend a hand to and learn about PETA's Emergency Response Team. During this internship, you'll jump right in as part of one of PETA's most fast-paced and critical departments, the Cruelty Investigations Department (CID). You will get in on the action and see firsthand the immediate impact that our work has on the lives of many animals.   Not a resident of Virginia? We offer housing for our interns so don’t let that keep you from applying!   The Typical Day of a CID Intern: • Unfortunately, cruelty cases are always pouring in, so a big part of this internship is helping to route incoming correspondence and transcribing telephone calls that could end up in official reports. • In order to gain the most experience, you will be working alongside CID staff members to provide responses to calls for assistance and e-mails. You'll learn how to handle these tough situations. • Some cases require a lot of research, so it's expected that you'll be ready to learn how to track down information on miscellaneous cruelty-to-animals and neglect cases. • From time to time, some information on a case will be tossed your way and we'll look to get your help with note-taking. • This internship does involve some hands-on work with animals, as we'll need help with basic animal care and feeding. Who doesn't love a good dog walk or giving animals some TLC? • Part of your day could consist of administrative tasks, which are necessary to the continuation of our work for animals. • Of course, you'll also perform any other duties assigned by the supervisor.   Qualifications: • For starters, you'll need at least a high school diploma or GED in order to be eligible to apply. • Situations out in the field are very unpredictable, so you'll need to have a strong stomach and know how to keep your cool in tough situations. It's not easy seeing injured animals, but you'll need to be ready to help in a heartbeat. • Exceptional organizational skills and attention to detail will help you keep everything on track, so résumés with grammar or other errors will be rejected. Sorry, but we can't risk it. • Consider yourself to be great at keeping secrets? Great, because we need somebody who can keep confidential information just that—confidential. • Many people say that they "thrive under pressure," but this position is a true test of that. We take on multiple cases at a time, and lives depend on us! • You must support PETA's philosophy and have the ability to professionally advocate our positions on issues. • Naturally, you'd need to be committed to the objectives of the organization.
