Liberal Arts Major: Labor and Employment Relations

Experience Time: Summer 2022

Give us a brief summary of your experience?

This summer I worked as a Corporate Sponsorship Manager and Game Day Operations Intern for Morris Elite Soccer Club. It was a minor league soccer team with players and staff from all over the world! I managed the production of multiple soccer matches including logistics and marketing while overseeing ticket operations.

How did this experience impact you academically?

Being in a classroom learning and hearing about what you are studying is a lot different than being in the office and actually applying those concepts. What I read about in my textbooks about roles in a company I was able to experience firsthand while working in the office. I got to put my knowledge from the classroom to the test.

"Being able to try many different parts of the sports industry I now have been able to decide that I want to be a general manager for a major league sports team."

How will this experience impact your career goals?

This internship affected my career goals by solidifying what I know I want to do in life. I always knew I wanted to do something in sports but never specifically what. Being able to try many different parts of the sports industry I now have been able to decide that I want to be a general manager for a major league sports team.

How has the College of the Liberal Arts helped you to find and/or succeed in this experience (e.g., adviser, faculty, staff, enrichment funds, etc.)?

Without the enrichment funds from the College of the Liberal Arts, I would not have been able to accept my internship position. These funds made a huge impact on my daily life because I did not need to stress about how I was going to pay for the credits I was taking. It was a lot of traveling and eating out, and without the funds I could not have done any of that.
