Where are they now?

Erie Sports Commission interns are doing great things! 

The Erie Sports Commission Internship Program  provides students with a real-world view of working in the sports industry in the field of events management and marketing and communications. Internships are offered each semester - fall (September through December), spring (January through May) and summer (May through August). 

Take a look at a few of the ESC's former interns, and the jobs they landed after graduation.

"I had such a positive experience interning with the Erie Sports Commission! Ron, Mark and Emily were great to work with and learn from. I highly suggest pursuing an internship with the ESC, especially for individuals interested in working in the sports/business industry."

Assistant Executive Director
Rochester District Golf Association
Erie Sports Commission Intern, Spring 2016 

"After graduating from Mercyhurst University in 2017 with a Sports Management and Marketing degree, I took a full-time position with the Rochester District Golf Association (RDGA). I started as an intern with the RDGA  in the summer of 2016, and currently hold the role as Assistant Executive Director. My main responsibilities at the RDGA include the pre-event planning/setup, and the running of local USGA Championship Qualifiers and local Rochester Area Championships. In addition, I assist approximately 70 local clubs with any questions they may have with their own event setup, the GHIN handicapping network, or the course rating system. I  love being part of the sports industry, particularly in golf. As I continue to further my career in this great industry, I can't thank the Erie Sports Commission enough for providing me with a great experience, and showing me how events should be properly be run from start to finish."

Erie Sports Commission Intern, Spring 2017 

"I honestly use what I learned at the ESC every single day. Working in sports, it's so important to understand every aspect from economic impact, marketing and the operational logistics of the sporting event itself. I help handle sponsors and sponsorship, so being able to explain to current and potential sponsors how much our soccer team impacts the Chicagoland area is very important to them when deciding how much time and money they should invest in us."
