As a member of the #CDECAICDC Social Media Team, you will be solely responsible for reporting, creating and distributing all the ICDC news to Collegiate DECA members and advisors both at the conference and at home. DECA is looking for individuals with social media prowess who are comfortable creating digital content for online platforms.

If selected, you will act as an ambassador for Collegiate DECA. You may be assigned to cover certain events or amplify specific projects, beginning weeks prior to ICDC.

This demanding job requires dedication, determination and motivation. Although the effort is high, so is the reward. Being part of this impressive team means you will help to continue the unparalleled social media presence that DECA is now known for having. If you fulfill your commitment, you’ll even have the opportunity to be recognized on stage at the closing session.

Please note:

  • Collegiate DECA members and chapter advisors are eligible to apply, however executive officer candidates cannot apply.
  • You must already be qualified to attend the Collegiate DECA International Career Development Conference.
  • This is a full-time commitment, but individuals will be allowed to compete in their competitive event and participate in their academy. You should expect to spend a minimum of one to two hours each day dedicated to the team. You can also expect to spend 2-3 hours prior to ICDC on Social Media Team items.
