With the Buffalo Bisons currently playing their home games in Trenton, NJ and the restrictions placed for hosting Major League games at Sahlen Field this summer, we regret to announce that the Bisons will not be hiring college students for internships at the ballpark this season.
We look forward to bringing on some very talented young professionals again in 2022. Until then, we want to wish everyone continued success in their studies.
Future Bisons Interns,
Normally, this would be the time the Bisons would be searching for eager and talented young professionals to join our organization for an unforgettable and educational seasonal internship with the team. Each summer, we very much look forward to meeting and helping the future leaders of our industry continue on their path towards great careers.
However, at this time Sahlen Field remains closed to the public due to the coronavirus pandemic. Because of our inability to be at the ballpark, and without yet having a full understanding of what this unique 2021 season will entail, we have not begun our interview process for 2021 seasonal internships.
For now, we would still like to encourage any collegiate student that would like more information about 2021 Bisons internships when it becomes available to email us at [email protected]. We would also encourage those who email us to include a resume to expedite the interview process once it is able to begin.
As a reminder, all Bisons internships are unpaid and must be for college credit.
We look forward to talking with you soon and having you join us for an unforgettable season at Sahlen Field.

Future Bisons interns,
You no doubt have many questions regarding the internships you interviewed and were hired for. Unfortunately, at this time, the Bisons front offices at Sahlen Field will remain temporarily closed as our 2020 season has been delayed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Please note, if you were hired as an intern for the 2020 season, you will still have those positions once the season gets going. Department managers will continue to provide updates when possible and we are hopeful that you will be able to fulfill the hour requirements you have with a rewarding, hands-on experience at the ballpark.
The team is also not hiring interns to assist with the Toronto Blue Jays home games at Sahlen Field this summer.
The Bisons will begin their search for 2021 collegiate interns this offseason.
