Volunteer Job Openings at FishDuck.com!
There are numerous opportunities in the Web coverage of College and Pro Sports, and we at FishDuck.com have established a unique niche which we believe has tremendous potential beyond this site. We are looking to further refine service and continue to grow as knowledgeable Oregon fans.
Our reader is more discerning than most and wishes to learn as well as be entertained by the written discourse in front of him/her. Our audience is decidedly high-brow, a bit older, and with more discretionary income than the typical visitor to a fan site. We are looking to expand our audience and want to invite you to join our team.
If you are interested in looking into any of the following positions, please email me at Charles@FishDuck.com and send along some samples if you’re looking to be a writer. Tell me a little about yourself. Where do you live? Why are you interested in the position? Remember that the email itself is also an indication of your abilities. Please use proper punctuation, paragraphs and grammar. If you have a resume and references, please provide those as well. Lastly, please include a contact number at which to reach you.
We are expanding in the following areas:
We are building a team to interact with social media and other sports websites to open up new reciprocal relationships and help spread the news about FishDuck
This could be a great experience for a student interested in learning Press Releases and initiating opportunities for FishDuck.com with the traditional media.
We have a long way to go in this area as we have grown without it. It is a tremendous growth opportunity that will show impressive results. If you have new ideas about how to market FishDuck.com, I want to talk to you today.
Research for Social Media and Marketing
We need specialized people helping us with Facebook and Twitter locating groups that could be interested in the site as well as finding new avenues within these areas for exposure to the site for the Oregon fans.
I am going to need help with the flood of people responding to this announcement and ongoing help with hiring and helping people get started with FishDuck.com
I need Football, Basketball, Volleyball, and Baseball Analysts doing what I do on Tuesdays and Josh on Fridays. You will not replace but augment what we are doing as we want more analysis voices on the site. Football analysis begins after the season ends to help give me a short break on occasion and basketball analysis begins immediately. You will need some technical expertise of the ability to get the help, but since I am technically impaired and get it done—I have confidence we can teach you how to make the diagrams and work with digital media.
We need a bunch more as we are going to a two-week rotation for writers instead of every week. We need writers for History, Opinion-Editorial, and for the non-revenue sports. We will also need writers for a blog within FishDuck.com geared to the younger fan who wants rapid information through the day in short articles. We will also need those willing to interview current and former players of many sports at Oregon, and someone willing to go to press conferences on our behalf during the day and live blog
Video Archive Specialist: (URGENT)
We need a specialist who will download videos each day (about a half hour of work) to add to our growing and popular FishTank Video Archive and you will be in charge of content and organization of a massive and growing area of importance for the site.
Photo Archive Specialist:
We are accumulating a ton of pictures for stories now and in the future and they need to be uploaded and organized for the writers. This is an opportunity to put your stamp on a new area of the site.
The “FishDuck Freak” Team:
Who doesn’t love LSU Freek and his hilarious GIFs? We want to assemble a team to create a West-Coast version of what he does. Know how to make GIFs or know someone who does? Have you got that twisted sense of humor and the savvy of current events to help create a script for an amusing GIF? Join the team as this might be the most fun of any dept. on the site.
I need someone on call that can help with the little items, not major projects, but often things that are quick answers to simple dilemmas. Being tech-impaired and having a website can be a headache at times!
University of Oregon Liason:
We have been so busy creating content that we have neglected establishing relationships with the different areas of the university that would have students interested in getting experience…if they knew of the opportunities. It is a position of great potential impact to the site!
