Sports Marketing internship program needs work
Sports Marketing Intern (Former Employee) – San Diego, CA – January 11, 2017
The athletics department is filled with fun, outgoing people who enjoy doing their job. Some are great to learn from, some make you wonder how they even got the job to begin with. In terms of the internship program for sports marketing, there is no educational benefit (i.e. strategies to promote game day and other products/events), limited opportunities to get hands-on/practical experience, and limited hours available per week. I recommend looking elsewhere to get a better experience or introduction to the sport marketing industry. The student life at this school is a war in progress and is one of top priorities for this department. I think if they understood the importance of student interns (free labor, positive word of mouth) they will be able to improve student attendance at games at a much quicker rate.
Free nike polo with the USD athletics logo, looks good on a resume, free pizza/subs at games, and able to watch games during your shift (cause there's nothing better to do)
Limited supervision, no challenging projects, no intern meetings, no educational benefit
