Since I have only had one job that was an internship due to me being an athlete all of my life I limited on work experience. With that being said I can use the internship that I did for this job description blog post.
The last job that I had was as a marketing intern for the Corvallis Knights. During this internship search I was looking for a marketing internship and came across this opportunity. I was suppose to help with selling and promoting tickets for games as well as help set up vendors and think of game themes. There was not much of a job description to go off of on paper but just what was told to me in person and in my interview.
With that being said I did a lot more tasks than what I was originally told. I built sports knowledge with a wide range of preseasons and summer assignments through customer service, ticket sales, and marketing promotions. I organized and ran game day stadium operations including in game entertainment, promotions, team merchandise sales and fan engagement. To sum it all up I ended up doing a lot more than what I had original thought but really enjoyed it. The opportunity allowed me to learn and gain so much more by doing such a large variety of areas.
In my situation I just really needed an internship so I was not to worried about the job description. Though I have been able to learn I should have that in writing so I know what I am suppose to be doing and getting compensated for. In my case I really enjoyed my experience even though I did way more than I had originally expected. I can see the job description really mattering in the future more so I know what I am getting myself into before I sign the contract. I had to do a lot more physical and grunt work than I had expected. Examples like helping set and tear down stadium each gameday. Going through and checking inventory answering calls in the office, and lastly I had to drive the team mascot to an event that took a few hours away from my day that was last minuet on a day off.
