September Facts & Figures
This internship is best for students who are interested in learning about how ticket sales and operations work in a front office, including how to manage tickets during events and games.
Greatest Takeaway? My greatest takeaway from working with Forward Madison is learning how a team can function successfully in their inaugural season. Since it is a smaller team, I also had the chance to see how different areas of the team functioned and I have a better understanding in what I would want to do in sports in the future.
This internship is best for students who want to work in the golf industry, especially those who have an interest in finance, accounting or general golf operations.
Greatest Takeaway? My biggest takeaway was learning how different golf destinations operate with different business strategies. For example, the main course I worked at could charge more for tee times, apparel, food and services because of its prestige, while another course I worked at focused only on number of customers because it was not as well-known.
This internship is best for students who are interested in social media and graphic design. If you want to gain experience at a smaller company, this is a great opportunity. Since there is only a handle of staff, I was able to take on a lot of responsibility, including being able to run the social media accounts for an entire team, which is unheard of at the intern level. I recommend working for the NWHL if you are interested in working for a league and learning about what goes on during the off season.
Greatest Takeaway? My greatest takeaway from this internship was being able to build my portfolio. My goal is to work for a NFL team in social media, so this experience enabled me to learn how to run social media accounts for a sports team. This was a huge stepping stone for me, not only on my resume but for my mentality of working in sports. I was able to learn how to post on social during the off-season, and I am not excited to transfer those skills to working in social media in season.
This internship is best for students who are looking for hands on experience and are interested in seeing how a sports agency runs.
Greatest Takeaway? My biggest takeaway was that working for a sports agency is very unique in that there are different tasks to accomplish every day. Since we’re representing athletes instead of a team there are different needs to be met for individual athletes (finding endorsements, making sure they’re satisfied with marketing efforts, spotlighting achievements on social).
