Careers and Internships

INTERNSHIPS

We offer customized, staff-level internships to qualified college students, recent graduates, and individuals making a career change or returning to the workforce. SOOR internships are unpaid, but the experience is well worth your time. You are placed with enthusiastic mentors, who help you develop future job skills and discover the inner workings of a major sports organization.

Our goal is to provide you with opportunities to form a well-rounded, professional experience.  The most successful interns are interested in working for and with individuals with intellectual disabilities, have good interpersonal skills and can articulate their goals. Enthusiasm is important.  Internships typically require a minimum of an eight week commitment. Many internships are part-time for a three to six month period.

Many of our interns do receive college credit for their internships. Contact your advisor or department chair to inquire about your school's policy and procedures for awarding credit for internships.
