Covering High-School Football 24/7
Position: Sports reporter & columnist (unpaid)
Overview: If you are a student who enjoys sports, loves to write, and has great communication skills, this is the perfect internship for you. This individual's main responsibility will be to serve as a sports reporter by interviewing players and coaches from the 25+ public and private high-schools in Charlotte. In addition, you will be writing one feature story a week for the website on these prominent high-school athletes. Interested individuals must possess a fairly good knowledge of sports and have strong writing skills. Broadcasting, Mass Media, Communications, English, Journalism, Sports Management, and Public Relations majors are preferred, but not required.
CharlotteHighSchoolFootball.com was just launched last year in the 2007 season. In just a four-month span, we generated close to 250,000 hits. With this huge success, we now have individual websites for the Raleigh/Durham area, Greensboro/Winston-Salem area, and the entire state of South Carolina.
How our success can lead you to even greater success
This is simple, yet effective. Many students have the talent to work on the next level once they graduate from school. The problem is separating yourself from the hundreds of other college graduates competing for the same job. One way to separate yourself is interning for a website that generates a lot of traffic; doing this will allow your work to be displayed on a global scale where prospective employers can see just how talented you are. Of course, just doing the internship doesn't guarantee you a job once you graduate, but it certainly puts you in a better position than the college graduates who didn't.
