University of Wisconsin-Stout’s Marketing & Communications team is looking for its next Website Content Marketing Manager. Use your voice and vision to enhance the digital enrollment pathway of prospective students, build partnerships with business and industry, and enhance the future we're building at Wisconsin's Polytechnic University.
We’re looking for a digital-first content leader who’s ready to amplify the career-focused, hands-on ethos and opportunities of Stout's polytechnic identity and passionate about helping learners discover and achieve in truly innovative ways. Sound like a lot? The greatest opportunities always do... And that’s what we are—a community driven to do.
If you write "for" and not "about" your subject. If you talk "to" and not "at" your audience. If you believe that content builds relationships. And if you're determined to improve communication through metrics and analytics, we want you on our team.
