Our program provides a number of students with an overall learning experience to include such areas as: Marketing/Promotions, Community and Public Relations, Ticket Operations, Stadium Operations, Ticket Sales and General Office Management. Our interns get a chance to experience each department over the entire summer to learn all aspects of the business and help to identify strengths and weaknesses as an individual.
In addition, Fisher Cats interns will work select Fisher Cats home games as part of our Game Day Staff. This creates an opportunity for the intern to interact with fans and apply what they have learned in the office to actual game-time situations. Some of the game day responsibilities include: ticket ticker, usher, MVP Health Care KidPower Play Area attendee, scoreboard, ticket office, sales-related positions, promotional handouts, on-field promotions and production room assistance.
The Fisher Cats and the Blue Jays organizations are both highly respected throughout baseball and carry themselves with the utmost professionalism in what we do. We are in search of highly competitive, highly motivated individuals who have a clear commitment to a career in sports and entertainment venue marketing/management.

My internship with the Fisher Cats this summer was everything I expected it to be and more. I learned a lot about what goes into day to day operations with a professional team in every department from marketing to ticket sales. The best part of this internship was the helpful staff and the other amazing interns you meet along the way. I consider this internship to be very rewarding because you are treated as a member of the office staff and they do everything they can to help you succeed. Anyone looking to get into a sports career should be applying for this position because you learn a lot, meet people who want to help you from day one and also have fun all summer.

Interning for the Fisher Cats provided me with a great summer experience. On top of spending my summer around baseball and with great friends, I was able to gain perspective on the business of baseball. The Fisher Cats introduced to me all aspects of the business and the staff was eager to teach me about their position with the Fisher Cats. Along with learning about baseball, the Fisher Cats introduced the interns to other professional sports executives int he Boston area.

My internship with the Fisher Cats was a great introduction into the inner-workings of a professional sports organization. As an intern with the Fisher Cats, I was able to gain experience in all aspects of a Minor League Baseball front office from selling tickets, to grassroots marketing, to assisting in game day operations. I also had the opportunity to work several events for the Fisher Cats including: Season Ticket Holder appreciation days, baseball camps, and the team's annual fundraiser, the Granite State Baseball Dinner. Working with the Fisher Cats reinforced my desire to work in sports and has prepared me to further my career in baseball. The Fisher Cats staff members remain great contacts and resources in the industry and are always there for support and encouragement.

The Fisher Cats internship program gave me the tools to begin a career in sports, from promotions to ticket sales and everything in-between. I learned how a very successful and award-winning office can come together and produce a great season of memories, not only for the fans entering the park, but for the staff and interns coming in everyday to achieve this goal.

The internship with the Fisher Cats was an excellent internship to partake in. This year was special because we got to host the Eastern League All-Star Game and we won the Eastern League Championship. You get to learn all aspects of the organization with the internship, which is all very useful knowledge if you want to seek a career in the sports industry. The full-time staff members are a great help and willing to give advice on anything possible. It was a great experience and I am very glad I had the chance to do it.
