Internship at Allendale Public Schools

Brayden
Major: Sport Management I spent my time either working events or in the school. For events, I would set up before events, take down after, and make sure things were running smoothly during the event. Some things were specific to the sport. During boys soccer and basketball I would often be in charge of the clock and scoreboard. For football games I would work as the spotter, meaning I would watch who the ball carrier was and who made the tackle then give the numbers to the announcer. Most of my event work was focused on how to run an event and learn all the little details that make for a successful event. In the school, I did a wide range of tasks. Somedays it was organizing contracts. Other days I was hanging up or taking down posters in the gym. There were times where I just sat back and learned how do do things like scheduling games or would listen to my supervisor talk to coaches.

TPUSA Events Internship

Marissa
Major: Communications I reported to work three days a week and worked a total of twenty-four hours every week. I was lucky enough to have such a hands-on learning experience of diving right in and helping in any way that I could to benefit the company and my team members. I worked on a team that was made up of ten individuals. The events team was small compared to the other departments, but the company was quite large and made up of determined people that were always ready to work. The organization had two large events that my team created, organized, and managed. The first conference was in Dallas, Texas in June and the second conference was in Tampa, Florida in July. My role before the conferences began was to manage attendees by approving ones that already applied to attend the conferences, emailing them back, and answering any questions that they asked. I also had to call and order supplies for the events, put attendees and employees in hotel rooms for the events, and execute any task that I was asked to do, such as managing the events team's Instagram by promoting information that encouraged people to attend the conferences. The main tasks that I primarily focused on while physically working in the office were accepting applications for the conference, sending the attendees a confirmation that they were approved to attend the conference, and replying to emails that any of the attendees sent in. I would respond to each email and clarify any concerns that the attendees had. It felt incredible knowing that I was impacting someoneýs life in a positive way by making their day better just by clarifying information for them.

Assistant Clubhouse Attendant

I hung the coaches clothes in their lockers and made sure their shoes were cleaned. I would get coffee started and restock the water cooler with bottled water. I would finish drying towels for both clubhouses and get those folded throughout the day. I would then make sure all 6 water coolers in the dugouts were filled with ice and cold water for the game and that they had cups with them.
