Description

Are you a high school student looking to build your resume for a future in sports journalism? Do you love soccer? If you answered yes to both these questions, FutnSoccer has the internship you're looking for.

FutnSoccer.com is a soccer news website dedicated to covering the Liga MX, the Premier League, Champions League and major soccer tournaments. FutnSoccer is currently syndicated via Google News, Bing News, Yardbarker, and NewsNow. If you write for us, you will have the opportunity to share your thoughts with thousands of readers.

Why write for FutnSoccer?
-Learn: Our editors will teach you how to format an article for an online audience, what topics work best, how to optimize your article for online search, and more. With FutnSoccer, not only will you improve your writing skills, but you will also learn what type of content brings in the pageviews that all online sports sites need -- an important skill to learn if you're planning to one day write for the big guys (ESPN, Bleacher Report, SI, etc.)
-Big audience: Due to our syndication network, each article you write has the potential to be read by thousands of people-- you won't be speaking to an empty room with FutnSoccer.
-Build your resume: Every article you write will be attributed to you, you can use these articles to build a writing portfolio that you will be able to present in future job opportunities.

Responsibilities

Each intern will be responsible for at least three articles a week, these articles must be between 400-1,000 words in length. The articles may only be used on FutnSoccer (cannot be re-published).

Please email us a writing sample (or links to previous work), and the team(s) you would like to write about.

This is an unpaid internship, although FutnSoccer will provide small bonuses depending on the success of your articles, as a token of our appreciation.

Requirements

We are currently expanding our coverage of the Premier League, and need interns that have an intimate knowledge of at least one of the major Premier League teams (Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City or Tottenham). In order to write for FutnSoccer, we expect good quality articles (no grammar/spelling mistakes, correct citations when necessary, etc.) and a thorough understanding of the EPL.

Journalism students preferred, but not required.
