"My time working in the Internship program was the start of my interest in working in
intercollegiate athletics. During a resume review, I was told that the most impressive part of my
resume was the hands on experience I had gained working as an intern. Being able to say I
helped plan a fundraising event attended by almost 400 people and planed marketing for Men's
Soccer and Men's Basketball sellouts not only gave me an edge up working within athletics, but
has companies calling me for Sales and Marketing positions. The internship also gave me the
chance to work with a great staff that would encourage me to work in Athletics."
