Start Date: Mid-May 2017
End Date: Mid-August 2017
Academic Qualifications: Prefer Communication, Design, Media, etc. fields of study, but will consider other qualified applicants.
Desired Skills and Qualifications:
• Familiar with social media platforms (specifically Instagram & SnapChat) and the proper etiquette required in a professional setting.
• Video editing is a plus but not required
• Must have your own device to shoot video, pictures, post, etc. from. Many schools have rented these out to interns in the past. Phones are acceptable if high quality and you accept data responsibilities.

Description and Responsibilities:
Each intern will be assigned to one of our 15 franchises (across four states) and be responsible for posting to the league’s SnapChat and Instagram accounts for each home game. They will also be asked to collect video, pictures and more of the players for our media database. Their work will be featured in articles as well as the league’s Around the CPL weekly show.
Interns will have the opportunity to pitch their own story ideas, whether print or digital based, throughout the summer as well as taking part in league wide video initiatives (i.e. Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Father’s Day, etc.)
Overall we feel this internship offers students the rare opportunity to build their portfolio in an impactful manner. It also allows them to be apart of the most entertaining league in the country - no pressure.
(Travel to road games is NOT required. Working all home games is a MUST)
Compensation: Meal stipend for each home game worked. Local housing where available for interns outside of the team’s geographic footprint.
