Jason Friedman wants an intern. And when you write for Rockets.com and have a loyal readership, you can simply put this kind of request out onto the Internet and wait for responses. It's that easy. I promise, the "SB Nation Houston Internship" will come about... at some point. I think.â†µ
Anyway, here's the rundown (oh, and if you're not a college student, you might as well stop here):â†µ
So here's the deal: I'm offering an internship for someone to serve as my understudy during the Rockets' 2010-11 season. No, you're not going to be fetching coffee or anything like that - we're putting you to work. You'll be writing stories, shooting videos and recording podcasts for Rockets.com; quite simply, everything I do for our website you'll be doing too.â†µ
Friedman will choose the lucky intern-to-be from a stack of 500-word essays. You only have to write one of them. He has to read many of them, though, if you're essay blows him away, that could be your job!â†µ
It sounds like a fantastic opportunity for any aspiring journalists or general Rockets fanatics with a flair for writing and filming in general, so give it a look. In the meantime, I'll be accepting donut coupons in exchange for the chance to apply for our future, hypothetical unpaid internship. GET TO IT!
