Are we your people?
Content strategists plan, structure and write content that makes the internet more enjoyable to use.
While we come from lots of different backgrounds, many of us have majored in things like English, communications, journalism, literature and information design. We’re obsessed with language, we think in pictures and patterns, and we’re curious about the ways people and machines talk to one another.
But since the field is relatively new, a lot of us content strategists didn’t always know that’s what we wanted to do. We had to find our people first, and realize that our perfect job existed. If this sounds like your perfect job too, then welcome! We’d love to hear from you.
Who can apply?
The fellowship is open to full-time juniors, seniors and graduate students attending colleges or universities in the US or Canada who are pursuing degrees in fields related to content strategy.
Questions? We’ve got answers.
“I felt so welcomed into the community by the Confab speakers, the attendees and the Facebook team. It was clear that these are people who love what they do, are wicked smart and are genuinely excited to share their knowledge. I’m now working as a content strategist at Facebook and I look back on the fellowship as the experience that really focused my passions and set me on this amazing new career path.”
