Internship @ isportsweb.com

 The internship: We are seeking students who want to build their resume and potentially obtain college credit by writing for a nationally recognized website. On top of students who want to publish their work, we are searching for passionate and knowledgeable sports minds who desire to write about the one team that they truly love. We have full and partial openings for a host of major pro and college teams. The correspondent position comes with the opportunity to have the student’s writing reach a national audience as isportsweb.com feeds into Google News, ESPN, and FoxSports.

 

Why isportsweb.com? This opportunity is unlike any other currently available to students on a widespread level. The selected correspondent(s) will have the opportunity to expose their writing across the country through our various feeds, gain a following, interact with their readers, learn how to write for a publication, post their articles, and be held accountable for their work.

If you are not interested in writing for credit but still want to join the isportsweb.com team, we are open to that as well.

Multiple openings are available.

Interns:

isportsweb.com connects a large staff of writers, or correspondents into one dedicated platform. Our site was officially launched in late February 2009. Each new student applicant must submit an application as well as sample articles on the team of their choice, if available. The isportsweb staff will then review these and attempt to find the best fit for each student. If approved, a student intern will be presented with a custom Correspondent Agreement, prepared by our in-house legal counsel, Joe White, and then must agree to all terms and sign and date it before they are sent posting instructions. isportsweb.com Phone: (517) 281-2416 Fax: (517) 699-1700 contact@isportsweb.com

The idea behind isportsweb.com has been in the works for years as the founders have been writing, reporting, and compiling information on their favorite teams for the past decade, mainly for their own private use. After a long run of this type of activity, it became clear to us and others familiar with our passion that our work needed to go live to the world. Without the aid of advertising sponsorship dollars or a mass marketing campaign to help build up our “hit” base, we have experienced strong and steady growth. We our now conducting our final phase of development, which is taking our internship program national. We feel that this will create the most unique and intriguing sports reporting site on the Internet. Thank you for your interest in our internship program.

Respectfully,

Joe White Rob White

 Background:

The Northwest Natural Resource Group (NNRG) is a conservation and rural economic development non‐profit organization based in Seattle, Washington (see http://www.nnrg.org). NNRG’s mission is to use the marketplace to restore forests and local economies.

Dedicated to promoting a sustainable, environmentally sound economy in the forestlands and watersheds of the Pacific Northwest, we focus on the smaller woodlands owned and managed by private landowners, smaller forest product companies, governmental agencies, and non-profit organizations. Our primary tool to accomplish our mission is Northwest Certified Forestry (NCF), a membership program for public, non-profit, and family forest landowners that provides access to Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®) certification, forest management assistance, landowner incentives, marketing, and educational workshops. We now have over 170 landowner members across 160,000 acres in Washington and Oregon. Through this and other programs, we work to achieve three primary objectives:

  1. Increase the number of acres certified under the FSC system in Washington and Oregon;
  2. Provide access to the tools and information that landowners need to sustainably manage their forest; and
  3. Improve the economics of sustainable forest management so that all landowners can secure the financial resources to steward their land, and consumers can help restore forests with their purchases.

 

Summary of Position:  

NNRG is a small organization, so each member of our team has a hands-on opportunity to make a difference for the forests and communities in which we work. Within this team, the NNRG Marketing and Communications Intern is responsible for maintaining NNRG’s social media presence on Facebook and WordPress, publishing the newsletter and changes to the website, and supporting overall efforts to promote NNRG’s programs.

Desired Qualifications:

  • Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, and a collaborative and creative work style;
  • Ability to organize and prioritize a wide diversity of tasks in a fast‐paced work environment;
  • Experience in non-profit work and/or marketing programs;
  • Experience in project management;
  • Proficiency in Excel, Word, Outlook, and Publisher; and
  • Proficiency in Salesforce, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress, and Hootsuite.

 

Responsibilities:

  1. Implementing NNRG’s social media plan including updating systems, building followers, and generating content;
  2. Leading production of monthly newsletters to NNRG’s members;
  3. Managing NNRG’s website including content and functionality; and
  4. Performing other duties as assigned which may include updates to NNRG’s certification database, fieldwork with NNRG foresters, assistance to NNRG members, and other project support.

 

Hours & Location:  

This is an unpaid position for 8-10 hours per week that will last for the 2013-2014 academic year. NNRG may also choose to work with an intern for a portion of the academic year if an outstanding candidate is only available for a limited time. If you incur business expenses during your work with NNRG, such as travel expenses for fieldwork, you will be reimbursed at NNRG’s standard rates. The approximate start date for this position will be September 15, 2013.

The location is NNRG’s office near Pike Place Market in Seattle, WA.
