What was your responsibilities at your internship?

Game nights I helped set up our Kids’ Club, signage throughout the arena, supervised giveaways, and engaged fans in sponsorship activities. In the office, we would help with Griffins Youth Foundation fundraisers, fulfill donation requests, organize our storage spaces, and run various errands to help out my department or the rest of the office.

I got to watch a lot of hockey and the office was super helpful whenever I had questions or needed help.

I got to learn how to ice skate!

Favorite thing that you get to do at your internship or job?

We had ‘Move of the Game’, and I would go to the upper bowl to find a family of 4 to move to the lower bowl. It was really fulfilling getting to see how excited families would get when I would offer them better seats.
