"I enjoy working on challenging projects that allow you to collaborate with various departments and levels of the organization. The opportunity to work with dynamic colleagues who share a common goal and bring diverse ideas to the table is a great way to build on your career.

The internship:

I am applying for this internship because I am interesting in learning more about the marketing and fan involvement aspects of Major League Sports. I grew up in a baseball loving family. We've had season tickets for the Houston Astros or the Miami Marlins for all of my life. I'd love the opportunity to work for the company that is responsible for my favorite sport.
