Pittsburgh G2U Social Media Campaign

In Pittsburgh, the Metro21: Smart Cities Institute piloted a public service marketing campaign through Instagram tailored and run by Gen Z G2U Interns. The team produced a series of “day in the life” interviews highlighting diverse, dynamic government leaders in the region showing the breadth of responsibilities and the impact that comes with a public service career.

The account has helped drive attention to G2U programming in the Pittsburgh region and is a model for reaching potential jobseekers on platforms they use.
