“Men wanted for hazardous journey, small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful, honor and recognition in case of success…”
While we are not recruiting for anything as hazardous as Ernest Shackleton’s expedition, we are looking for an extraordinary volunteer for a one-of-a-kind position and a talented intern.
The AAC is seeking someone who is passionate about climbing and the documenation of new routes, expeditions, and accidents. We hope to find a dedicated, long-term volunteer for the new position of Digital Editor, helping AAC staff and other volunteers develop, populate, and curate the AAC’s new publications website, as well as new forms of digital storytelling. We won’t lie: There will be a substantial grunt work involved. But you’ll also be a key leader and manager in shaping the future of the AAC’s digital information resources. If you love the AAJ and Accidents, and you love online information, this may be the volunteer opportunity of a lifetime. Previous experience with publishing on WordPress or similar platforms very important. Basic image processing skills a plus. Residence in metro Denver area helpful but not required. The time and flexibility for a significant commitment to AAC publications: essential. If this sounds appealing, contact Dougald MacDonald, AAC Executive Editor. Honor and recognition (and some cool perks, too) are guaranteed.
Always dreamed of working on the American Alpine Journal or Accidents in North American Mountaineering? Want to learn print and digital publishing skills in the climbing industry? The Publications Intern will work among a dedicated team of climbers and editors to gain lifelong skills in multimedia journalism and publishing. While intern missions vary from day to day, the AAC gives interns the freedom to design work plans that support both the organization and their future aspirations. Interns must work from AAC headquarters in Golden, CO and commit 20 hours/week for four to six months. The Publications Intern position is unpaid; however, interns may receive college credit. Check out the complete description. Applicants should email their resume and cover letter to Erik Rieger, AAC Assistant Editor.
