BP Job Postings
2012 Internships Available
Baseball Prospectus is looking for interns for 2012, specifically for the spring and summer academic quarters (or immediately, if available now). Before applying, please ensure that you can devote at least 10 hours per week to tasks including, but not limited to, interesting and rewarding baseball stuff. Internships are unpaid aside from the famous free Baseball Prospectus Premium subscription for life, and you must receive college credit for your internship. Please be sure your application email mentions the period during which you wish to work.
Baseball Prospectus interns have the opportunity to do great things. Editorial interns will immediately contribute to the operations of a site that publishes dozens of articles per week. Technical interns can lead lasting, important projects, as former BP super-intern Ben Murphy did with the Player Forecast Manager. Many interns have contributed bylined content during their internships, and others have worked extensively on Baseball Prospectus book projects. One former intern was just named Managing Editor. Basically, become an intern, and before long, you could have my job. (Come to think of it, I probably shouldn't even be posting this.) Baseball Prospectus interns have also gone on to work part- or full-time elsewhere in the baseball industry, and there are many former Baseball Prospectus interns in front offices around the major leagues.
Here are the three types of interns we're recruiting. If you want to be another type of intern—Intern Who Eats Ice Cream, let's say—you'll have to convince us that we overlooked an important fourth type.
