This internship will start in August and can possibly be remote.

Are you a recent graduate looking for a 3 - 6 - or 12-month role that boosts your career in the sports industry?
 
TeamWork Online is the unquestioned software technology leader in bringing together highly skilled and passionate sports career enthusiasts with hundreds of sports organizations.   In our 3- 6 - 12-month apprenticeship, you can see all of sport, be exposed to all leaders in the sports industry and all facets of business, whether it be customer service, social media, marketing, sales, event management to data analytics.  If a full-time job opens up with our team, our apprentices are the first to be considered.

What makes us different? We empower our staff to do things that impact the business and the industry on a day-to-day basis. Our team is exposed to the brightest and best in sports - meeting executives at local teams and sports businesses all over the country from the day they start.  We educate our team on the industry; past, present and future as well as on our business - everyone gets a chance to do sales, marketing, service, and analytics.  We value our team, our clients and our job seekers - we believe our business is all about our relationships and streamlining the recruiting process through nifty technology, service, education, networking and face-to-face interactions. 

What’s our record of success with apprentices? Typically, our apprentices are either offered a job here at TeamWork or we help to place them with one of our clients. 

What are we looking for?
  • A recent graduate, or someone graduating in December who needs an internship to graduate. 
  • Smart. Believe it or not, we do pay attention to overall GPA.
  • Curiosity:  We don't want followers.  We want people who think of new ways to do things. An intern once created the "scoreboard" that still shows on the front of our website. So an interest in tech helps. 
  • High Achiever and Hard worker.  We want you to want to work hard, learn a lot and be excited to learn more than you can imagine.
  • Quick. On the computer with typing, writing, and getting tasks done quickly, reading emails, figuring out what the employer or applicant is struggling with, and providing the answer.  We want you to handle the tasks and strive to become more strategic.  
  • High attention to detail, particularly strong on the keyboard. We don't like making mistakes; we hope that's one of your compulsions too.
  • Great writing. We write in complete sentences, and proper grammar and spelling is really important. If you aren't good at that, it won't be a good fit.
  • Communication skills of shooting video (more than the iPhone), video editing, podcast editing, social media posts (beyond your own)  - familiarity with Adobe Premiere - if communications is a strength.  
  • Skilled with Excel.  All of our team work with Excel on a daily basis.   If you are strong in analytics, we want you to know how to do regression analysis, "R" and Python. 
  • Passion for the sports industry: If you want to be a leader in the industry, there is no better place to get a full view of your options.  If you don't want to pursue the industry, we're probably not the best fit. 
  • Happy. We work best with people who are happy with themselves. 

What will you do? Our apprentices heavily support the work of our client services team, senior leadership, and business development.  Apprentices perform research, post on social media, implement marketing tactics to promote open positions, directly interact with both clients and candidates, and are allowed a strong voice in the company. This is real work that affects the business, not just some "run errands" stuff.  Additionally, we spend time each week educating our interns on issues of the company and the industry to better prepare them for the future. 

Responsibilities: Here are some examples of potential duties.
  • Communication: Keeping staff up to date with sports industry news.
  • Client Services: Assisting in communication with candidates in regards to open positions posted on our site.
  • Research: Such things as examining hiring trends and other data from our system.
  • Social Media: Creating social media posts,  finding social media data, and uploading the weekly blog, video editing, and other social media projects.
  • Teammate Events: Assisting with emails, logistical information, and tracking ticketing numbers for our open events.

Please fill out the cover letter. We want to see how well you write. Hired apprentices have also submitted a video elevator pitch, another way to show you are not just fishing for any job - hint hint....
