MyCollegeRoadTrip Travel Writing Internship
MyCollegeRoadTrip was founded in 2008 to be the website with the best travel information for college students.
From my own trips, I noticed the gap in quality, relevant travel information when going to other sites and seeing that all of the reviews were from Mom’s and Business travelers. These are pretty irrelevant to college students.
There are also thousands of unique trip ideas, events, and places to go that are just for college students. These may be huge concerts like Bonnaroo or on campus events like SAE Boxing Tournament at The University of Tennessee. MyCollegeRoadTrip’s mission is the be the central hub for all of this content so that college students can come here to found out the coolest things to do during the best four (or five) years of their life!
Position: College Travel Writing Internship
Description: College Travel Writers will come up with ideas for and write short articles on MyCollegeRoadTrip.com about trip ideas, events, and places to go that are cool and attended by College Students. These should be short, attention grabbing articles that are unique, fun, and targeted to college students. A great example is the UT SAE Boxing Tournament that occurs in Knoxville every year.
