Sport Management Major Lands Internship in Florida

Brown (R) with two other HJGT Interns 
Rebecca Brown '16 is spending her summer in the Sunshine State where she landed an on-par internship. The senior sport management major is interning as a State Marketing Representative for the Hurricane Junior Golf Tour (HJGT) in Jacksonville, Fla. HJGT provides junior golfers with the opportunity to play a variety of courses in more than 20 states in a competitive golfing environment. The main focus of Brown's internship is to promote the golf tour's current events, as well as to research venues for future events.

"I am completely operations minded and like hands-on tasks" Brown explained "But I decided to take on a marketing position to expose myself to something new."

No stranger to the world of internships, Brown's resume is already quite lengthy. Some of her past internships have included positions with the Athletic Scholarship Corporation, BW Athletic Department and the Greater Cleveland Sports Commission. During the upcoming school year Brown will be interning with Cleveland State University.

Recently, Brown was also named one of four recipients of the 2015 Greater Cleveland WISE  (Women in Sports and Events) scholarship. For now, her ultimate career goal is to work in an athletic conference at the collegiate level. However, she says with every new experience, her career goals evolve and change!
