Detroit Tigers

Event Staff & Tigers Foundation Intern

March - September 2019 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

I liked the environment and the community in the administrative offices. The people were so wonderful and I wouldn't trade my experience for any other internship this past summer! They made me want to work hard for them and I felt very comfortable right from the beginning.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have had a couple more opportunities to work on different events going on in the stadium. The Tigers Foundation was a big load and took up most of my time.

Advice

I would work on your sales skills! I ended up selling 50/50 raffle more than I thought and learned a lot from that, but I think I could have sold more in the beginning if I had had more sales skills.
