Mississippi Braves Internship

Posted on: November 16th, 2016 by jheo1

The Mississippi Braves are now accepting resumes for students looking to serve as a trainee during the 2017 season. If you don’t mind, could you pass along our trainee information to any students that might have interest in the sport industry? We’ll start interviews soon. Some start earlier than others—preference given to students who can start in January and work through the end of the season.

 

The flyer/posting is attached. The Braves trainee program is open to any qualified applicant who has at least a 3.0 GPA. Trainees are expected to work at least 37.5 hours per week and may have additional game day responsibilities. The individuals who participate in this program are paid an hourly rate of $8.

 

General Requirements for all trainee positions:

  • GPA of at least a 3.0 at graduation
  • Excellent written, verbal and communication skills
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office (Word, Power Point and Excel)
  • Customer service oriented
  • Excellent executive presence
  • Ability to work long hours, weekends and holidays

 

We place trainees in tickets, general sales, concessions, stadium operations and grounds. They can email a cover letter and resume to our general email, mississippibraves@braves.com or they can contact me directly. I check the general account, so I’ll get the info either way. Preferably, we’d like to receive all applications by mid-November (sooner the better). However, the actual deadline is December 9.

 

If you have any questions, please let me know.

 

Thanks,

 

Miranda
