The Canadian Association of Science Centres is looking for two content producers to join their team and create social media content across their channels.

According to the job posting, with misinformation running rampant online, the content producer would work to make content that is relevant and useful to Canadians.
What is the job?
If you snag this job, you can be expected to work with a very close team. You will also be tasked with creating content that will go up on the company's social media channels, like their @ScienceUpFirst Instagram account.

What are the requirements?
For this job, you do not need a science degree, however, the company does ask that you have a Bachelor's degree or diploma in marketing, public relations, graphic design, communications or anything that shows you can tell a story creatively.
You'll have to speak either French or English, or both, to get the job.
Do you have a knack for all things social media? Because you'll need to be well versed in content creating for Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and TikTok.
You will also need to have some basic video editing skills, like creating captions and "text animations."
How much does it pay and how do I apply?
As a content producer, you can expect to rake in $50,000 to $60,000 a year.
You may want to get a move on that application because the interview process starts the week of March 22, 2021. Luckily, they will keep looking until they find the right person for the job.
You will need to start by emailing a resume, cover letter and links to three examples of content you've produced, which could include social media posts and videos.
You can email your application to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Content Producer (English) or Content Producer (French), Science Up First" as your subject line.
