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.

Mission:

isportsweb.com is committed to continuing its tremendous growth and becoming a leader in sports information on the web. We have developed a dynamic internship program that we feel your students could benefit greatly from. isportsweb.com is passionate about becoming the first purely intern-driven sports website in the nation. To be able to provide this unique opportunity to your students would give us great joy. We strive to be able to grant team access to each of our correspondents so that we can be the first stop, and the last stop, for team-based coverage on the Internet.

Coverage:

We are covering 6 major sports: NCAA Basketball and Football, MLB, NFL, NBA, and NHL. We also cover other areas of interest such as horse racing and NASCAR. isportsweb.com is also affiliated with Yardbarker.com/FoxSports.com and feeds into many major national feeds.

Management:

isportsweb.com’s management team is comprised of the 2 founders; Rob White and Joe White, who serve in multiple capacities.

We also serve as the editorial team, the hiring department, the customer service team, and the media relations department alongside our Internship Development team of James Edwards and Scott Peceny.

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

isportsweb’s staff will work closely with your university to make sure that the mutual needs and goals of the school, the student, and our website are being met on a daily basis.

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
