yeah, but technical writing was the vast majority of what i did, and it's not quite the same.

i thoroughly enjoyed reading stuff written by my ex. he is good. started as an engineering major, but dropped that pretty quickly. he was obviously a right brain

Yea, it's mostly intern stuff because most teams don't want millions of applications so they keep it on the DL. That reminds me, I need to get back at you

Exactly. As a professional intern, proofreading random crap has been a common task. With my last internship, one of the first things anyone gave me was to proofread the contract the company had with one of their sponsors and outline all of the things we would owe them if we did not fulfill our obligation for one reason or another (be it our fault or out of our hands). Since this was sports, that would include things like lockouts, cancellation of games, any sort of event or instance which would prevent games/assets from existing, etc. Interns are great at reading stuff because they're paranoid they'll get fired if they don't. At least the interns that aren't useless.

I always had the availability for a full-time internship, but that was mostly because of the way I scheduled my classes. Maybe because I never went too far out of the region from school and preferred being overly busy than bored.

Saw you said you were looking into sports. Any particular fields/departments (marketing, operations, accounting/finance, etc)? Have you applied to places or done anything aside from browsing postings? I've had more interviews with teams/organizations in the NYC area, and a number of internships as well (just finished one last week, making it like 4.5 total). I can definitely give tips/advice that may help you out in getting a position somewhere, even at places I haven't worked.

Sort of the same question as the post I just responded to above. What kind of fields/locations? And what have you done in terms of reaching out and/or applying anywhere?
