Even though LeBron James is getting ready for Game 4 of the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals against the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night, he still has time to share with the world that he is looking for a couple of star interns.

Early Tuesday, “King James”, 28, shared a link on his Facebook page to a job description for college interns to help work on his website, LeBronJames.com.

The LeBronJames.com internship program has openings for students “who have an interest in online content development and digital sports marketing,” the job posting states.

Candidates must currently attend college or a four-year university and be available at least 10 hours a week.

Among the desired qualifications for the spring, summer and fall internships are residency in Ohio, South Florida or New York and Spanish fluency.

The deadline to apply is June 4 at 10 a.m. ET.

Requests for comment to James’ publicist and LeBronJames.com were not immediately returned.

The job description does not specify financial remuneration.

Meanwhile, the power forward of the Miami Heat is the second-highest paid U.S. athlete. He earned $56.5 million in the last year, $17.5 million of which was his salary and $39 million of which came from endorsements, according to Sports Illustrated. Included in his endorsement contracts are deals with Nike, Coca-Cola, McDonald’s and Samsung.

The requirement to be a college student may appear a bit hypocritical for James.

He graduated from St. Vincent – St. Mary High School in Akron, Ohio, skipped college and went straight to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t know a thing or two about job hunting, as the most sought after free agent in recent NBA history. Before James joined the Miami Heat as announced in the famously awkward television broadcast, “The Decision” on July 8, 2010, he was offered a summer internship with an ad agency. No word on whether he officially declined the opportunity.
