Reports to: Team Reporter
Based at: Pittsburgh Penguins, PPG Paints Arena, 1001 Fifth Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15219
Job Purpose: The Staff Writer Intern supports the efforts of the Team Reporter in managing the content and quality of the website and printed publications. This is a writing-intensive position as prospective candidates will publish written material, and should possess strong writing and editing backgrounds. Candidates must be organized, responsible, professional and punctual.
Responsibilities will fall strongly in the creation of written pieces on players, coaches, and hockey operations/front office staff members, which will primarily be handled during practices and morning skates. But since the intern will also work with Marketing, Partnership, Youth & Amateur Hockey and the Penguins Foundation to produce written features on those departments’ events, candidates should have flexible schedules to work afternoons, nights and weekends as needed for the duration of the internship.
Candidates should also expect to attend all home games in a shadowing capacity, assisting with in-game initiatives and post-game stories as needed.
Key Responsibilities and Duties:
We are an equal opportunity employer and all qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, gender identity, marital or veteran status, or any other protected class.
