Ski Racing Media seeks interns for 2017-18 season
Ski Racing Media is currently seeking web and editorial interns to join our staff ahead of the 2017-18 competition season.
We are looking to fill our internship positions this summer to train for more extensive work during the fall and winter. Prospective interns should be highly motivated individuals who are familiar with ski competition and who are pursuing or have completed their college educations. Photography, video, and social media skills are a plus as is reliable transportation to cover local events.
Web and editorial interns should have an educational background and experience in news writing or related field — familiarity with WordPress is a bonus as is experience with cameras both in taking still photos and filming and editing video.
Ski Racing Media interns are expected to work approximately 10 hours per week and will gain valuable experience with our interactive, multi-platform media company. We maintain a virtual office, so the internship can be completed from anywhere in North America. Exceptional past interns have moved on to full-time, paid employment with us. Internship benefits include travel to competitions, accreditation at major events, college credit depending on your institution, and published bylines and video credit for professional portfolio development.
