As the Charlotte 49ers head to Conference USA this fall, and with this little thing called football that’s coming up in August, things are about to get very busy in Niner Nation. And whatever happens, Pick Axe Digest will be at the forefront, covering it all. But we need your help.
Along with football (and everything that comes with it), there’s basketball (men’s and women’s) and soccer (C-USA is one of the top men’s soccer conferences in America, and some great teams will be coming into Transamerica Field this fall); volleyball and tennis will be looking to make their mark on the new conference as well.
What’s in it for you? You’ll be a part of one of the largest and most visited Charlotte 49ers sites on the Web, as well as benefit from FanSided’s partnership with SI.com, one of the most respected sports organizations in the world.
Here’s what we’re looking for (please note that these are unpaid positions):
Staff Writers (two or three)
Staff writers will only be required to write a post or two a week (maybe a few more depending on the sport), so you’ll definitely won’t be overwhelmed with work. They must be knowledgeable about Charlotte 49ers athletics and provide clear, concise content on a regular basis, and have some background in social media.
This person’s sole job will be keeping up with Charlotte’s various football recruits as well as their progress throughout their high school career, and updating the site on a regular basis. They will also be able to leverage our social media outlets as a source to break possible recruiting news.
No experience is necessary, but we’re willing to train you on getting the most of the tools we have. Students are highly encouraged to apply as well.
We’d love to have you join our team. Drop us a line at [email protected] if you’re interested and we’ll get the process started!
