Great place to learn about the sport industry.
STUDENT VOLUNTEER (Former Employee) – Minneapolis, MN – October 10, 2013
I learned a lot about the sport industry in my time volunteering with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
I Volunteered at over 10 Timberwolves games over three seasons assisting the Public Relations, Group Sales, Marketing and Corporate Sponsorships departments
I assisted in pre-game giveaways, in-game and post-game promotions, set-up/teardown of game presentation equipment, a group suite sale, and supplying media with in-game statistics.
I learned valuable information about the industry and how a professional organization operates.
The most enjoyable part of this for me was the experience I gained. This has been my favorite organization growing up, so it was surreal to feel like I worked there a few times a year. The work involved didn't really feel like work. It really showed me that the ideal job for anyone is the enjoyment that what you're doing doesn't feel like work.
