Internship at Rivals.com

Students,

It was a pleasure speaking with you all last week. My main goal is to constantly give back and provide opportunities for those interested in breaking into the business.

In keeping with that theme, I have an opportunity for those of you interested in interning with Rivals.com.

Rivals.com is the No. 6 destination for internet sports fans worldwide, surpassing the unique visitor numbers of more “traditionally known” destinations like MLB.com, NBA.com, SI.com, CBSSports.com, as well as numerous others sites, providing interns an amazing amount of exposure and visibility to their work.

Candidates should be journalism or communications majors and have an interest in sports. The position will reward the chosen candidates with internship credit hours, a strong resume, as well as potential opportunities beyond the completion of the internship. The schedule is flexible.

Responsibilities include but not limited to:

Three original content items per week
Message board discussion with community fans visiting the site
Providing team, player, and recruiting coverage

Additional Qualifications

Major in journalism or communications
A basic knowledge of HTML
Written and oral communications skills
Self-motivation
Ability to develop and cultivate working relationships

Interested candidates should email their resume and cover letter to bkoub@yahoo.com and I will pass it along to the right people at Rivals.com

Good luck.
