The Staff Writer/Multimedia Intern supports the efforts of the Manager of Content in managing the content and quality for the website and game day program. This is a writing-intensive position as prospective candidates will publish written material, and should possess strong writing and editing backgrounds. The position will also assist in a few multimedia aspects of the website, including photography and web maintenance. Candidates must be organized, responsible, professional and punctual.
Responsibilities will fall strongly in the creation of written pieces on players, coaches and front office staff members, which will primarily be handled during practices and morning skates. But since the intern will also work with the Marketing, Community Relations and Youth & Amateur Hockey departments to produce written features on those departments’ events, candidates should have flexible schedules to work afternoons, nights and weekends as needed during the time of the internship. Candidates should also expect to attend all home games in a shadowing capacity, assisting with in-game community, marketing and youth & amateur hockey initiatives and post-game stories as needed.
Key Responsibilities and Duties:
Intern must be a junior or senior in college and must take the internship for credit during the Spring 2021 semester. The internship is unpaid. Intern must be pursuing a degree in journalism, creative writing, communications or a related discipline.
The employer is committed to creating an inclusive and diverse work environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, family status or disability.
