Hey Ladies, are You a Rockstar Public Speaker and a HUGE Sports Fanatic?

 

15918332681Recently, Nike posted through ZagTrax for a Field Reporter position looking for  a lady who is a  real mover and shaker who has high communication skills while being comfortable both in front of a camera as well as a celebrity.

As the Nike Field Reporter, you’ll jetset around the country on Nike’s dime talking to athletes, artists and culture makers. You’ll report back in the form of photos, videos and blog entries.

You have to be ready for anything and anyone. As this is being written, the current Nike Field Reporter is spending a few days just hanging out with Kobe Bryant.

Think you could keep up? Remember this isn’t a job for the camera shy. Or the easily intimidated. You’ll need to show us you can talk a good game, as well as play one. Make us laugh. Impress us with your quick wit and storytelling. Prove to us you are Nike’s next star in a 2-minute audition video and sample blog post.

 Here are the job requirements from Nike:


+ Must be an 18-24 year old girl (Sorry guys!)
+ Sorry gals, we can’t accept college or high school sports team athletes. Eligibility issues. Besides, you’re busy enough already. 
+ When picking your wardrobe, you must avoid wearing items with your school or sports team names, or logos of any sort (except Nike, of course!) 
+ Don’t reference any other teams, companies, or organizations. 
+ If you have anyone else in the video, they need to sign this waiver. 
+ No music please. We love music, it’s a rights thing. 

Maximum audition tape length: 2 mins
Deadline for submissions: June 15th, 2009 7PM PST

Finalists are announced July 1st, 2009
The Next Nike Field Reporter will be announced at the end of July
