Fall 2017 Sports Management Internship
The Company: Flag Star Football, founded in 2014, is the fastest growing flag football league in the country. Sticking close to our core mission – Get Better. Have Fun – we’ve grown from 160 kids (Fall ’14) to 4000+ kids in 2017.
The program is incredibly popular because, in short, we’re the best. Led by Flag Star’s founder, Carl Ehrlich -- former Harvard Football Captain – we’re a team of hard-working, fun-loving, entrepreneurial-thinking people who care about the kids’ lives we touch.
There’s an incredible upside to this company – internal growth, franchise opportunities, etc – and we need intelligent people to come on-board and help guide us forward.
The Internship: Interns will meet three times a week at company headquarters (Carl’s house in NW DC) as well as staffing our flag football league on Sundays. Schedules can be flexible, but we expect interns to be locked in, working hard and “playing on their toes.”
Work will cover the full range of operations. From website design to financials to staff training and community outreach. Most importantly, we’re looking for intelligent people to take on – and finish – essential projects.
The Perfect Candidate: Has a great attention to detail. They take pride in their work and are ready to roll up their sleeves and take the time to do a project right. They’re people who pride themselves on being “lifetime learners,” thinking through problems and pro-actively anticipating future company demands.
They’re also, hopefully, fun-loving people. And okay with dogs. Our company is a close-knit group and we love that positive energy!
The Commitment/Compensation: Intern start-date is August 15th (ending November 20th). The internship also comes with a $1250 stipend.
Next Steps: If you think you’re right for this job, please e-mail your cover letter and resume to Nikki Blankenhorn directly – firstname.lastname@example.org. Look forward to speaking.
