Why become a Grizzlies intern?
The Gateway Grizzlies provide a fast paced, hands-on learning environment for students who want to get their feet wet in the sports industry. Interns are responsible for not only executing, but also planning and creating their own events. We create a job setting where young professionals get to jump right in and learn exactly what it’s like to make a minor league sports organization run successfully for an entire summer. We could not put on a single show without the leadership of our interns. This internship is not only for those who want to work in sports, but those who have interests in all departments of a business whether that is marketing, promotions, event operations, graphic design, public relations, journalism, sales, and more!
