Campus Ambassador Program

Heart For The Game, a content and commerce website owned and operated by the wives of college football coaches, is seeking Campus Ambassadors for summer and fall semesters 2015.

The website leverages the insider status of coaches’ wives and takes a deeper look into the family partnerships behind the college football coaching world. It features female voices that stir people and offers a storytelling platform that humanizes the coach, the team and the game. It moves the story line away from traditional game-day reporting, deepening the connection to the game through stories only a coach’s wife could share — that only they could tell. One consultant called it football suffrage and we thought that moniker seemed apt.

We are looking for interns who specialize in reporting, editing, graphics design, or social media.

  • Reporting interns will interview the wives of college football coaches, and will use these interviews to write rich site content.
  • Editing interns will edit daily site content, ensuring that all content meets site branding standards, and will assist in sending the Heart For The Game e-newsletter, along with managing other special projects.
  • Graphics design interns will create images for our social media accounts, and help reporters to edit imaging to meet site standards.
  • Social media interns will manage Heart For The Game social media accounts, ensuring that quality, brand-focused postings are made on a consistent basis.

We seek committed and energetic interns who possess strong writing skills and are able to meet deadlines. Understanding of AP style is a must along with SEO best practices.

College internship credit may be arranged between Heart For the Game and respective colleges if the work meets such criteria as specified by individual schools (we ask that students contact their internship coordinator for those details).

This internship is unpaid but will offer students valuable professional experience and solid portfolio pieces for future work. Students will be credited as content creators.If you have questions, please email intern@heartforthegame.com.
