Have you got a knack for writing on the latest news about the U.S national teams or covering the action of American players in Europe or other locales? Then you may be someone we want to join the Yanks Abroad team as we are looking to bring in new writers to help us expand our content.
The YA staff is a close-knit unit comprising of guys based in Europe, Asia, and the United States. We love soccer which is why we have set up this platform to keep the public informed about what is going on with our national teams and players overseas.
We are looking to bring in more talent to our squad as we strive to become one of the top-tier sources for soccer news.
Please note that the positions are unpaid. However, one of the benefits you will get from joining us is that you will get your own byline for stories as well as the opportunity to brainstorm ideas with our experienced staff.
If you fit any of the positions below, please send a cover letter, resume, and two writing samples (if possible) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are looking to fill the following positions:
We are looking for a couple of people who can follow the news coming from Europe about American players whether it be about potential transfers, recent performances, injuries, or any interesting comments they may have shared with the press over there.
This position may be suitable for someone who would like to get their foot in the front door for writing about soccer.
With a handful of players in Spain, we are looking for someone who can provide regular coverage of the action in the country. This would mean writing recaps on American players who have played in the latest league and cup games.
There are so many Americans playing across Europe that we don’t have the time to provide recaps for every league. That is why we are looking to bring on someone that can manage our European Roundup section. This would require you to cover Americans playing in Scotland, Denmark, Turkey, Portugal, the Netherlands, and any other European country featuring American players.
Yanks Abroad Women
Our American men are not the only ones playing in Europe as there are many American women as well playing across Europe. We want to give them their spotlight. We need one or two writers that can cover league games in Europe involving American women including the UEFA Women’s Champions League.
Americans are not only in Europe as there are few playing south of the border. We are looking to bring someone in that can provide regular coverage of what’s going on with our American players in Mexico, Brazil, and Argentina. This position may be ideal for someone with Spanish language skills.
The national teams are, of course, the main focus for most Americans that follow the sport. We want to be there to provide extensive coverage of the national teams during friendlies, tournaments, qualifiers, and any other events that may come up.
We are looking for individuals that cannot only provide recaps of games but also provide content in the lead-up to the games. That would entail joining conference calls to get quotes from the coaches and players, writing previews, and post-game analyses, and ratings on the performance of the players.
We will strongly vet those who are interested in this position.
