"My summer at the Pro Football Hall of Fame was one of the most hands-on and enriching experiences I've had. Every staff member, regardless of department, was more than willing to help with anything I needed which resulted in one-of-a-kind networking opportunities. I couldn't have asked for a better internship program and am excited to see how it helps me progress in my career going forward." – Taylor, Intern Summer 2021

"My summer at the Pro Football Hall of Fame was vital to my holistic growth as an individual looking to grow in the world of sports business. Not only did I learn so much about myself from this experience, but I also gained a wealth of knowledge in fan-experience, event planning, internal and external communication, relationship management and of course the history of professional football!” – Lexi, Intern Summer 2021


“As an intern we had an Organized Team Activity (OTA) every Wednesday that included guest speakers from the management team, as well as outside guests from the Green Bay Packers and NFL Films. This OTA program sets you up for success by getting to know the other interns and also meeting the staff that makes this place special.” – Marcus, Intern Summer 2020
