Questions to ask yourself when picking a place to work:

  • Will I get enough hours working here?
  • Are the jobs I'm given relevant to Sport Management/Coaching?
  • How much interaction will I get with current employees/staff?
  • Does this job interest me?
  • What can I bring to this position?

To get the best results students should pick an internship they have a vested interest in, not just somewhere they can get the hours done.
