Are you the resident Dodgers expert amongst your friends and family? Are you funny, friendly, reliable and do you bleed Dodgers blue?
Why not take advantage of your passion and loyalty and be part of DodgersNation.com?
We’re looking for volunteers for DodgersNation.com. If you’re interested, please apply!
The next chapter of Dodgers Nation is going to be written and we want you to be part of it!
Why should you join DodgersNation.com?
There are few opportunities to write about the Dodgers with such a sizable platform as you’ll find at DodgersNation. You’ll join a team that’s been able to interview players, gain all-access passes to All-Star Games and Events, have their articles show up on:
- Fox Sports
- LA Times
- OC Register
- Yahoo Sports
- & Much More
Writer – Please have good writing, grammar skills and be somewhat internet savvy.
The following positions are what we’re looking for to fill:
- Pre-Game Analyst: On the day of the game, we aim to provide Dodgers Nation with a pre-game analysis of the opponent and the Dodgers advantages and disadvantages.
- Post-Game Analyst: Within one hour after a game, be able to provide a quick analysis and recap of the game.
- Editorial Writer: You can either write on topics that we have on our list or you can come up with some yourself. This position will be asked to produce at least once piece of content per week.
- Minor League Analyst: You’ll be in charge of relaying the future of the Dodgers organization to our readership. Who’s coming? Who might be moved to attract major league talent from other teams? You’ll be speaking to the most passionate of our fans, for better or for worse.
- Statistician: The movement towards numbers in baseball is more prevalent than in any other sport. Can you digest the information and explain it to readers in a way that keeps them interested? If so, you’d be a valued member of not just our team, but throughout the baseball blogosphere.
- Dodgers Scene Contributor: Baseball inherently ignites a passion for everything around the game. So, in this role, it would be your job to find the best places to catch games, how best to enjoy Dodgers Stadium, recipes for baseball food and more. Foodies are welcomed.
- Historian: The Dodgers boast an incredible history of great players, coaches and personalities throughout the organization – both inside and out. As Dodger Nation’s historian, you provide insight to link the present and future with the past.
Special Preference will be given to applicants who have more research-based experienced to write articles backed with stats and facts.
