Jay-Z Looking to Net an Intern for the Summer

S. Carter Academy to Offer One Person a Summer Internship with the New Jersey Nets

CANTON, Mass., May 2 -- As an artist, record executive, part owner of the New Jersey Nets and headmaster of a special online academy, Jay-Z is looking for the best and the brightest to help him out during the summer. Jay-Z, in conjunction with Reebok and his new S. Carter Academy, has launched an innovative college internship program to find one qualified applicant to intern for the summer with the New Jersey Nets.

The S. Carter Academy, an online "school without walls," was designed in partnership with Reebok as an extraordinary enclave of creativity, inquiry, and discovery. The S. Carter Academy is the premier online destination for those seeking to train with the best and obtain an elite status in music, fashion and sports. The Academy presents one of the most comprehensive, up- to-date and relevant music, style and sports curriculums available anywhere.

As part of the curriculum, the S. Carter Academy will offer real-world experience to its members in the form of internships in the sports and music industries. The first internship for the year will be with the New Jersey Nets of the NBA, of which Jay-Z is a part owner.

The internship program with the Nets is designed to give one applicant the opportunity for real-life work experience in the highly competitive sports industry. The candidate selected for the six-week internship program will intern for the Nets to truly understand the inner workings of a professional sports franchise. Through May 15, 2005, entrants can go to http://www.scarteracademy.com and sign up for the academy and apply for the internship program by submitting a resume along with an essay answering the question, "Tell us about your career aspirations and how they relate to professional sports?"

The S. Carter Academy internship program is open to anyone in the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who are between 18 and 24 years of age. Applicants must have a valid e-mail address to be eligible. Entries will be judged on the entrant's academic and professional credentials, an essay submission and the creative presentation of the essay. The prize is a temporary, non-paid internship with the Nets. Housing will be provided by Sheraton Edison Hotel. The Nets internship is the first of three internships that will be provided by the S. Carter Academy.

I guess that would be great experience but doesn't that seriously limit the people who could apply to rich kids whose parents can support them by making it an unpaid internship?
