Nicole Van Zanten is the Social Media Coordinator for the Vancouver Canucks, which, as the title may suggest, means that she wears a variety of hats. Nicole coordinates and executes activity within Canucks Social Media platforms, utilizes Social Media to build promotional campaigns throughout the Season, covers home and road games on the ice and in the Dressing Room, and is the face behind the Canucks tweets and Facebook posts. In addition, Nicole works closely with Canucks Mobile App in strategy and development, and supports Rogers Arena Social and Digital Media strategy and execution for all events within the world class building.
HITTING THE BOOKS
Nicole majored in Communication and minored in Business at Simon Fraser University. Prior to entering her current position, Nicole worked in non-profit and corporate positions within Vancouver. Nicole entered Canucks Sports & Entertainment through a Marketing Internship during the 2009/10 regular season, a program that she highly recommends. “The Vancouver Canucks offer a variety of internships and it is an excellent way to gain invaluable experience.”
“Post-secondary education, in Communication or Business, is important for this position. I would highly recommend looking into internship opportunities with the Vancouver Canucks, or other sport organizations. The experience is second-to-none and it’s a great way to get your foot in the company.”
