In the past few weeks, we said goodbye to the last of our summer interns and the season came to an end, preparations also began to recruit our 2014 spring and summer intern classes.
What better way to bid a fond farewell to our 2013 interns and provide information to potential interns than to offer up a compilation of some of my favorite blogs, tweets and photos that were posted over the course of our 13-week summer season by our 2013 intern class.
As someone who has completed two AJGA internships, I’m quick to say that one of the amazing perks of the job is the beautiful golf courses and scenery that serve as your “office” every day. A quick glance at social media has me believing that much of our 2013 intern class shared my feeling.
Not only do our interns visit beautiful places, they meet new people and make new friends in the process.
They may have been tasked with blogging for us here on the AJGA blog, but a few of our communications interns also took to the blogosphere on their own. Tim Hamilton, Megan Arnold and Tim Jackman are just a few of the interns that wrote about their weekly encounters and experiences with anything from rain and inclement weather, to great host families.
“When I was walking around the clubhouse on Sunday I walked right by Rory McIlroy. Needless to say it was a bit of a surprise. Just not someone I was expecting to see that day. It was quite interesting and cool to see one of the best in the world in the office right next to ours.” – Tim Hamilton
Hopefully my #ThrowbackThursday was nostalgic for those of you who just got off the road from the #AJGAInternship. We can’t thank you enough for your awesome work helping us run events all across the country this year.
For those of you that are reading this and thinking to yourselves that the internship may be something you want to do, be sure to check out the “Careers” page on our website.
Lauren Shelly, the AJGA’s Manager of Recruiting and Special Events, as well as a host of other AJGA staff across varying departments, will be hitting the road to visit career fairs across the country this fall. Be sure to stop by, visit and ask any questions you may have about the #AJGAInternship. We can’t wait to meet you!
