Media Management Internship

Are you looking to learn about how to manage the content at a media source or major website?  We have openings for those of all ages who can lend expertise from their years of experience, or for students who want experience in managing the content schedule, working with writer issues, and making decisions about upcoming articles and content on the site.  The Associate Publisher position is available in the future and you may work up to that position as you gain familiarity with daily on-goings of the usual business of a site in the Top 1% in the World for pages read on a monthly basis among all active websites globally.

This is a volunteer position that is typically 15+ hours a week and will be media management experience for the resume’ that students rarely get the opportunity to have.

This is a position of enormous learning between the media technology and the close work of teaching and working with writers and editors. You will first be writing and then doing some editing in order to have that full experience to rely upon when managing others later. You will learn how to manage and maintain the quality of articles and be responsible for their proper publishing six days a week.

This is a twelve month commitment that begins in late summer, as you are being taught by the current Associate Publisher for three months, manage the position for six months, and then mentor the next Associate Publisher your final three months. You’ll be ready to run a publishing company when done!

Bob Rodes is one of the superb editors that you will learn from…

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.

We are the only site that is Guaranteed Troll-Free in the comments as we insist that everyone be polite and considerate to their fellow Duck fans. Debate and disagreement is welcome and encouraged so that we can learn from each other, but we will operate in a civilized environment unlike anywhere on the web.
