Loyola University / Communication Internships

Crystal Palace USA: web journalism/writing

We are a professional outdoor soccer team based in Baltimore. Our goal is to provide education in the field of professional and amateur sports to dedicated and qualified individuals who seek experience in a fast-paced, exciting environment. The positions offered are meant to better prepare interns for future career advancement whether it be in sports management, communications, public relations, journalism or marketing.

Currently, we are looking for writing/journalism majors to provide content for press releases and for our website. We prefer applicants to have a focus on writing for sports, and require some knowledge of soccer. Crystal Palace offers non-compensated internships. However, this opportunity guarantees that the intern's work will be published on our website, as well as the possiblity of appearing in local newspapers and promotional print material. It is a great opportunity for the student to build their writing portfolio.

Applicants should be detail oriented and capable of handling multiple tasks. Minimum time requirement to participate in the intern program is 20 hours per week. Some positions offered may require more than the minimum 20 hours weekly. Hours during the evening, weekends and holidays are necessary when a soccer match is scheduled.
Anyone interested should submit a resume as well as samples of previous written work (sports articles preferred) to mbryant@crystalpalaceusa.com.
