I loved the high-energy atmosphere that was created by the organization and the team. I got to interact a lot with the fans and get to some regular fans quite well! The marketing team I worked for was a great group of interns that ultimately made working the long homestands enjoyable and worth it!
What I wish was different
I wish I was able to get more hands-on experience working with the Florence Freedom sponsorships. Although, I was personally able to promote our games and events by going to businesses and organizations in person, I would've loved to learned how to activate and connect with our sponsorships on a corporate level.
Don't be afraid to make the first move! This internship is all about putting yourself out there and becoming more comfortable in working the sports industry! The staff is always willing to help you when needed, so don't be afraid to try new things and put yourself out there.
