Internship: Internship
The Harvard University Athletics Department offers paid and volunteer internship opportunities in the following areas: Athletic Communications; Equipment; Events & Operations; Marketing; Multimedia; Recreation; and the Ticket Office.  Interns play an important role in helping us run our department.  Our philosophy is to provide interns with hands-on experience that shows them what goes into running a Division I Athletics program.

We also run an Intern Development Program, consisting of informal monthly breakfast or lunch meetings with athletics administrators and coaches, so you can get practical insights into careers in sports management and build your network.

Start dates will typically be in late July or early August 2019.  We ask that you commit to working for 10 months.  You will generally work 40 hours per week unless otherwise noted – if you work more than 40 hours per week, you will be paid overtime.  Evening and weekend work will be required.  Your schedule may vary to accommodate evening and weekend work.   There may be times when you will work in extreme weather conditions (heat, cold, rain).

Paid interns are compensated at $12 per hour; volunteer internships are not paid.  Harvard offers unique variety – we have 42 varsity sports as well as extensive recreational and club programs. The Athletics Department has team spirit and fun activities. The Intern Development Program will help you get your career in sports management off to a good start by exposing you to all aspects of running a large DI program.

We have a great location: Cambridge is a multi-cultural city with exceptional diversity, and Boston is the undisputed hub of college and university life.  You will also get free use of our athletic facilities, including our Olympic-sized pool; fitness center; and indoor tennis courts.

SPECIAL NOTE:  You MUST be enrolled in a degree-granting program with an accredited college or university that requires an internship as part of the degree process.Please do not apply if you cannot meet this requirement.

We also offer Volunteer Internships, which are for College Credit.
