2018 GAME DAY INTERNSHIP PROGRAM (APRIL-SEPTEMBER)
***THE APPLICATION WINDOW FOR 2018 GAMEDAY INTERNSHIPS HAS CLOSED***
The Game Day Internship Program is designed for college students to explore careers in the sport industry while getting hands-on experience working with one of the most successful teams in Minor League Baseball. The IronPig's GDI Program will expose students to numerous game day roles and will allow students to learn from and work alongside IronPigs Front Office Staff members. By experiencing multiple departments, the GDI Program is designed to assist students in choosing which specific direction they are interested in.
The GDI program will begin in April and will conclude in September. Interns are expected to be present for all IronPigs' games they are scheduled for. Although interns will not be scheduled to work 100% of the games, we are looking for qualified candidates that have open availability. We acknowledge that most colleges and universities do not end the school semester until May. The GDI Program is able to work with individuals that are still attending classes at that time.
Game day report time is approximately 3 hours prior to first pitch (4:00PM for a standard 7:05PM game). GDI's will be dismissed shortly after the game ends when all responsibilities are finished.
Game Day Interns are able to earn college credit. A small stipend will be provided per game.
- Assist in general game day setup including; giveaways, programs and sponsor tables
- Handle customer service inquires at front desk and fan services
- Assist promo crew with on-field entertainment and escorting mascots

Students participating in the GDI Program will be exposed to a professional working experience and will gain valuable information in the following categories:
