Media and Marketing Intern

May - August 2019 • Utica, MI

What I liked

Cool atmosphere, and the management was very understanding when it came to taking days off for vacation and/or a paying second job.

What I wish was different

There is absolutely zero perks. Not only do you not get paid, but you don't get anywhere to park near the stadium, no food to eat, and no merchandise either.

Advice

Get ready to give up your summer nights if you want to work here. Good experience for the resume however.

Marketing/Promotions

May - September 2018 • Utica, MI

What I liked

I gained substantial experience working in a game day experience. I handled many different aspects of marketing and promotions and how to execute them in a timely manner.

What I wish was different

I put in a lot of hours, 40-50 a week. If I would have received some type of pay, it would have assisted in paying tuition for this semester.

Advice

If you have an opportunity to take an internship, do it. I was not 100% sure what I wanted to do in the future and this was a great chance to open my eyes to a career within the sports field. Take a fast paced internship position if possible because it taught me how to handle situations that arise in a limited amount of time.

What I wish was different

I was not paid for this internship, and there were many times that I worked overtime, close to 60 hours per week. It would have been nice to receive compensation for all of the time I contributed to this internship.

Advice

Do not be afraid to take risks in the social media world. There are so many different ways to advertise and market your employer and it was very fun and beneficial learning how to do these things successfully through social media platforms.
