MLB jobs, internships still available

February 4, 2009

picture-10Is MLB.com hiring as many sports reporters, stats stringers, and pitch f/x operators as Monster.com suggests? Just received an email indicating this is so, along with a note warning that this could be my last chance to prove I can make it in the big leagues. Actually, that happened in 1983 when I had difficulty hitting the 90 mph sliders in a Florida semipro league. (Perhaps, MLB is really implying I can cover major-league games.) Since I have a job, I will pass this info along to you, hoping you can hit a home run with your application, knocking it out of the park in your interview to score a job. (Yeah, I know. Cut it out.) Here’s the link for the jobs advertised. The requirements posted for each team are the same:

MLB seeks interns for summer ’09

September 23, 2008

Here is the press release for MLB’s summer internship program. It’s a terrific opportunity to learn on the job. Good luck.

Begin release

Want an exciting summer of covering Major League or Minor League Baseball? MLB.com offers 33 reporting internships to aspiring sportswriters. These internships are designed to give associates the full range of experiences that comes with covering a professional team. Each associate will work closely with a site reporter to give visitors to a team’s Web site all the information they need to follow the team from Opening Day to season’s end. Each Major League city will have one associate, and MLB.com, which manages the Web site for MiLB, will offer three internships for the Minor Leagues.

We will be looking for talented college juniors and seniors, as well as graduate students, for our 2009 Summer Internship Program. The application deadline for all internships is Nov. 30. We will make our selections by the end of January.

We expect each intern to spend a minimum of 10 weeks in the program, dates determined by a person’s college schedule. Also, the more flexible an applicant is in terms of which Major League city he or she can work in, the better the person’s chances of being selected. Interns are paid $500 per week.

Applicants should submit a resume, five to 10 published articles (no columns should be included), a list of references and a 750-word essay on why MLB.com should pick you? Please use the essay as a way of showing your creativity as a writer; in short, it should be more than a simple cover letter.

MLB.com also will be offering a limited number of internships for copy editors/producers.

Associates are responsible for arranging their own housing and transportation.

Please mail all internship applications to:

Bill Hill
Assistant Managing Editor/MLB.com
Attn: Internship Application
14825 N. 97th Place
Scottsdale, AZ 85260

If you have any questions, contact Bill Hill at bill.hill@MLB.com and put the words “Internship Info” in the subject line.
