It's All Over

Well the suspense is over and the team has been eliminated. Yesterday, Monday May 1, was my last day to come into the office to finish up a few things. The feeling is very bittersweet. It is a huge relief to no longer be devoting 35 to 50 hours a week to free labor for the Nashville Predators. However, I will miss all the people I worked and learn from in the organization. The end of the game on Sunday was disappointing as all the game night staff, who I worked with during the games said good-byes. Throughout the season everyone had become very close and almost like family to each other. Yesterday, I talked with my boss and company official about the quality of performance and who I enjoyed the internship. Everyone was very pleased with my level of work, and although there is immediate opening within the company, I was assured that I would be notified if their was a job they felt I would be qualified for.
Although, I spent a lot of time and money in the last four and half months with my internship for the Nashville Predators, I wouldn't change anything about it. I was able to get a broad range of experience from promotional writing to special events to game operations. I would recommend this internship to student who are willing to do a lot of work, but get a great experience of what the front office of a major sport organization is like.
