Men’s Soccer Intern
CPHHS really likes to emphasize the importance of experiential learning. Lucky for students, the men’s soccer program at OSU is looking for an intern starting in January 2021. This is an opportunity to be immersed in a high-level professional sport environment working with top tier athletes. A successful candidate will understand no job is too big or too small. Roles & responsibilities include managing video equipment, managing training equipment (balls, vests, cones), and assist in recording specific metrics during training sessions. The qualifications include a preferred GPA of 3.0+, a sophomore or junior, and excellent organization skills. This is an unpaid position, but the selected intern will be eligible for athlete priority
registration to select classes before general students. This helps ensure classes & class times are optimal for their schedule & academic plan. If you want to apply, send your resume to Alex Guyer.
