As editor of this site, I am not always available throughout the morning and afternoon to catch those small bits of news that happen concerning the Indiana Pacers. I am working at a school, where I am involved with groups and assisting in classrooms with little time to even check twitter or facebook or any sports site. Therefore, I would love to find that person who wants to get their start in this world of sports media and they could be our eyes and ears for some news here and there about the Indiana Pacers.
Here’s a look at the criteria that spells out what we are looking for and some of the expectations of this position:
Applicants should be available to cover 3-4 hour shifts during the day/evening and should have a solid command of the English language.
-Strong use of grammar, punctuation and sentence structure
-Basic understanding of SEO (search engine optimization) but we can help with this
-Monitor relevant team news outlets during your shift, including Twitter and Facebook
-Recognize news-worthy information and provide a short, informative news post to the site (200-300 words, in and out)
-Continue to monitor team news throughout your shift and follow up on any stories until your shift is over
-Provide at least one post per-hour during your shift
