Editorial Intern at SportsGridBookmark This
New York, NY
DescriptionSportsGrid is seeking a fall semester editorial intern to help keep our sports blog machine rolling. If you're
looking to get your byline on an established sports blog, earn school credit, make a name for yourself in
the world of digital sports media, and do some original reporting along the way, this is the place to do so.
SportsGrid is the site for news, videos and smart opinions about sports as seen through the eyes of the
media-addicted fan. Our coverage of athletes, teams and coaches goes beyond the playing field, and
in our world, a player’s late night TV appearances and controversial political views matter just as much
as his batting average. We also work in conjunction with RotoExperts.com to deliver top-flight fantasy
analysis and predictions in all major sports – particularly football in the fall.
The ideal candidate:
- Is a current college or graduate student looking for hands-on writing experience at a news startup.
- Is familiar with our site, and the sports blogosphere in general.
-Is willing and able to pitch ideas for new features.
- Has three smart, witty writing clips that mesh with our style and will blow us away. At least one clip
should not be about sports.
- Wants to break the next big, smart, slightly sordid sports story.
- Possesses a clear knowledge of what works on the Internet and what doesn't.
- Can find stories on his or her own, and can quickly turn out crisp, clean, funny blog posts.
- Has an eclectic range of pop culture interests, and isn't only about sports.
- Is a Twitter addict.
-Has good attention to detail, particularly in regards to grammar, spelling and style.
-A good sense of humor.
