Our Internships will be on a rotating basis between posting/interacting with Oregon fans, and doing research as to the newest strategies to find more Ducks who do not yet know of the site. We want to know what they wish to see as postings, what our competition is doing, as a whole industry has emerged in Social Media that we wish to apply to FishDuck.com.

Our new contracts with USA TODAY Sports Media, and The Sporting News gives us video offerings that none elsewhere have, thus our promotion potential in Social Media is emerging at FishDuck.com. Be on the ground floor as this department on the site is just beginning!
