Bloggers Wanted: Sports Illustrated’s Home Ice

Are you a college junior/senior studying journalism/PR/communications with a hockey/sportswriting background and looking to expand your portfolio? SI’s Home Ice Blog is looking for game-night bloggers to work 2-3 nights a week and provide updates, highlights, and short news posts to supplement our nightly coverage.

Familiarity with hockey and Wordpress a must. Please note that this is a byline-only job: you will not receive any monetary compensation. We will also provide recommendations and resume help as warranted.

If interested, please send a resume and writing samples as an attachment, along with a short message detailing your experiences and any questions you may have, to nhl.blinn@gmail.com.

Please note that any incomplete submissions will not be considered. We are looking to fill these roles before the Olympics are over and have you start when the regular season starts back up. We will do our best to respond to everyone as volume allows.
