    CF Needs an Intern

    CycloneFanatic.com is growing. This is a good thing.

    We’re launching our new and improved online store later this summer. Other exciting news is on the way as well.

    We are dedicated to being your one stop shop for all things Iowa State Cyclones on the Internet.

    With this, we need some help.

    I need an part-time intern.

    Are you interested in a career in sports journalism? Maybe it isn’t you. Do you know a young person who might be?

    I’m ideally looking for an Iowa State student who is studying journalism.

    This is an outstanding opportunity for a current student to get hands on experience in helping to cover a division one football, basketball and wrestling program.

    The requirement for landing this gig is simple.

    You have to be self-motivated. Laziness is not allowed. An outstanding work ethic and passion for the field is an absolute must. I’m more interested in that than I am in finding the most talented writer in the pool.

    Duties for this internship will include but are not limited to: Helping to cover weekly Iowa State press conferences, some game coverage when needed, research, other writing responsibilities, help with future CF endeavors, etc.

    If you’re interested in this, please e-mail your resume, writing clips and letter explaining why you’re the best candidate for the job to chris.m.will@gmail.com.

    I look forward to your responses.

    FYI - This intern will more than likely start right before football season.

    would this internship be a paid position?

    Yes. Money would be involved. Not a ton of it, but most sports journalism interns aren't paid at all.

    It was at this time I wish I could write better. I'd even do it for free.

    Yes. I began my career initially at the Iowa State Daily and then started doing intern type work at the old CycloneNation.com.

    Re: CF Needs an Intern

    I'm guessing they could use this to fulfill their internship requirement, correct? (Is there still an internship requirement to graduate with a JLMC degree?)

    This could be a really good experience for someone, especially as sports are having a larger online presence.

    Re: CF Needs an Intern

    Could you possibly need an intern for the summer of 2011? Or is this just a school year gig?

    That would ultimately be up to the Greenlee school but yes, I'd be all for it. I am a Greenlee School graduate so I'm sure that they would let it count.

    Online is the present and the future. This is an outstanding opportunity for somebody to learn and make contacts as well.

    I found that sports journalists in general are paid next to nothing anyway. Get used to it.

    Does it have to be a journalism major? Us EE's have pretty good writing skills!

    I'll echo this. I got paid during my internship, but it was roughly about a dime more than minimum wage at the time.
