Interns Wanted: Sports Business and Journalism

The Suffolk County Sports Hall of Fame is looking for interns for the fall and spring semesters with an interest in sports business and journalism. The intern positions are open to both college and high school students. Help honor the past and inspire the future.

As an intern for the Suffolk County Sports Hall of Fame you will have the opportunity to help with a number of areas from sales and branding to digital engagement, inductee relations and external relations to marketing and communications.

The Hall of Fame is going through a rebranding and restructuring and we want eager students who want to leave their mark on an organization that is rich in history and tradition.

Internship is available for credit and small stipend.

Intern’s responsibilities (varies for business or communications track)

  • Communication Enhancement. Develop story ideas, profile inductees, film and edit videos, and more.

  • Event Management. We will have 3-4 key events per year and you can help drive the organization and project management around these events.

  • Drive Sales. We’re going to build a sales program attractive to companies who want to sponsor and partner with the Hall of Fame. You can build this from the ground up.

  • Self-Starter. You don’t need to be told what needs focus, or what to fix. You are intellectually curious, and you will use this interest to propel you into seeking out problems and finding solutions.

Skills and Specifications

  • Must be a Suffolk County resident and native (if you are in college outside of Suffolk County, that’s fine)

  • Must be interested in local sports and sports history

  • You’ll likely be working on a bachelor’s in business, sports management, project management or journalism

  • Work under stress to meet project deadlines and minute attention to detail

  • Highly self-motivated individual

  • Desire to learn and contribute
