Pieces of the Puzzle: Journeys in Creative Real Estate Investing

Title: Radio Intern (PAID – salary negotiable)

Pieces of the Puzzle

Message from Robert Feol, radio show host:

Hello, my name is Robert Feol and I am a Memphis real estate investor(full time) and also a radio show host, my radio program ‘Pieces of the Puzzle: Journeys in Creative Real Estate Investing’ having been on 990 KWAM The New Voice of Memphis and 600 WREC(News Radio) for the past 2 years.  I believe, through my consulting work in Memphis for real estate investors and my radio show, I may have an exciting internship opportunity for a candidate with the right qualifications.

Specifically, I am seeking an intern to assist with three things, in the following prioritized order:

1) Do the graphic design and layout of a new magazine I am working on launching, Robert Feol’s Creative Investing Journal Monthly.  This magazine is focused on bringing cutting edge news and thought provoking angles to a subscription base of investors globally, and readership is built through online media marketing and also national and international speaking engagements.  Specifically, I need an intern who is WELL VERSED in Adobe InDesign (CS5) and able to do the layout, covers, and graphical illustration(as well as some minor proofreading) while meeting specific guidelines.  I also need the intern to be able to work directly with the fulfillment center as far as getting proof copies, etc.

2) I need an intern to assist with booking national talent in the worlds of finance and real estate for my radio program.  They will work with publicists, etc to do the final scheduling, coordinating of courses(home study courses/affiliate products), etc., in a prompt and professional manner.  I do the initial contacts right now, though this could easily be turned over to them also.

3) I will need their help in coordinating affiliate programs(which are monetized), and also working with our Indian IT team to add affiliate links to our website.

I believe that my work and growing career in broadcast radio and as a national speaker would present some enjoyable opportunities as well as a tremendous learning experience for an intern in your school of Journalism looking for a successful career in the field of Journalism.  We have a staff of about 7 at the office I work out of at 6262 Poplar.

This opportunity may also include international travel, as we may need the intern to travel with us to foreign countries like Singapore and Australia, depending on speaking bookings.  Obviously, all of the intern’s expenses would be covered by us, if the University allows such travel.

Here are some recent media articles about me and our show:
