Lebron James Looking For Interns To Build His Website For Free
Lebron James wants to hire interns to help build his web presence:
Even though LeBron James is getting ready for Game 4 of the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals against the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night, he still has time to share with the world that he is looking for a couple of star interns.
The LeBronJames.com internship program has openings for students “who have an interest in online content development and digital sports marketing,” the job posting states.
Candidates must currently attend college or a four-year university and be available at least 10 hours a week.
Among the desired qualifications for the spring, summer and fall internships are residency in Ohio, South Florida or New York and Spanish fluency.
The deadline to apply is June 4 at 10 a.m. ET.
Requests for comment to James’ publicist and LeBronJames.com were not immediately returned.
The job description does not specify financial remuneration.
Meanwhile, the power forward of the Miami Heat is the second-highest paid U.S. athlete. He earned $56.5 million in the last year, $17.5 million of which was his salary and $39 million of which came from endorsements, according to Sports Illustrated. Included in his endorsement contracts are deals with Nike, Coca-Cola, McDonald’s and Samsung.
Well, to answer the remuneration question, the title “intern” typically implies that one is not being paid except for a stipend to cover living expenses. Given the amount of money he earns, couldn’t Lebron afford to hire a professional web design firm to handle this stuff for him?
