Internships with the National Sports Media Association were created to benefit both the student (with practical work experience and college credit) and the NSMA. Internships are unpaid; students may or may not receive college credit, depending on the institution. Internships can be either part-time or full-time (full-time preferred); however, an intern must commit to a minimum of eight (8) hours per week during the internship.

Internships are available for the following periods:

  • Fall semester
  • Winter break
  • Spring semester
  • Summer

Duties may include, but not be limited to:

  • Assisting NSMA staff with data entry;
  • Cataloging and organizing sports media museum exhibits;
  • Creating/updating databases;
  • Creating marketing materials;
  • Creating and updating NSMA social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube)
  • Helping with NSMA events;
  • Interacting with NSMA members and staff;
  • Writing news releases;
  • Preparing brochures, newsletters, e-blasts, e-mails;
  • Organizing and collating mailings;
  • Developing/editing original content (written, audio, video) and uploading it to website;
  • General office work.

Interns are expected to:

  • Show up (on time) for their scheduled hours. An internship should be treated as a ‘real’ job;
  • Call to inform NSMA staff when late or sick;
  • Conduct themselves professionally. Dress is business casual, unless otherwise instructed;
  • Ask questions! It’s the best way to learn.
