The VideoLibrary Internships & Positions
There is nothing like The FishDuck.com VideoLibrary as we are creating the most impressive online sports video library of any college sports website anywhere! No need to go to YouTube and search for all the different subjects about Oregon Sports as The FishDuck.com VideoLibrary has ALL the videos (more than 5,000!) that we crave in one place; team highlights, player highlights, the famed FishDuck Instructional Football videos, as well videos of the UO Cheerleaders, the Duck, Oregon music, even hundreds of historical videos of past Oregon football games!
The FishDuck.com VideoLibrary! Rollout is summer 2015, and you can help create it! One objective will be doing research to find the videos that pertain to Oregon sports, and add them to the VideoLibrary along with keeping current categories updated daily.
FishDuck.com now has a new contract with USA TODAY Sports Media to have access to video made by them, Campus Insiders, Sports Illustrated, and Fox Sports! We also completed a new contract with The Sporting News to provide Oregon videos from the Pac-12 Network direct on our site! Again this will make us unlike anything on the web, and you can be a part of the growth from the ground up.
You will make important content decisions about videos to add to our playlists, or for the Video of the Day! One day it might be a video about Oregon football from the talking heads on ESPN, or at USA TODAY. Another day it might be a highlight video of an Oregon game from The Sporting News/Pac-12 Network.
The next day it could be a touchdown pass from Joey Harrington from 14 years ago as we have not a hundred historical videos, but a hundred playlists of historical Oregon videos! So Duck fans will be thrilled at our Video of the Day provided on the site, or through our Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook accounts/pages.
You can now apply for upper division School Credit at the University of Oregon for your time spent on this project due to the close alliance of FishDuck.com with the university in providing students opportunities for improving their resume’ along with job skills to help them get hired.
