This is a great (unpaid) summer internship for a college student looking to go into the sports industry. The NFF is a small nonprofit, but makes a big difference in the college football world. It also looks great on a resume and provides the opportunity to grow existing skills and learn new skills in their various departments. It helps if you have had some experience in the sports industry, whether working with your college's athletic department or another capacity in the industry, but not required.
Overall, I loved the welcoming environment and atmosphere. Everyone was so kind and supportive of my desire to go into the sports industry. I highly recommend this internship!
What I wish was different
Getting paid, but it's a nonprofit so it's not really possible. The experience and kindness of everyone there makes up for it!
Be open to learning new things and being out of your comfort zone. It highly benefits you!
