Feedback from Internship Partners

“It has been an absolute pleasure supervising interns who come to the NFL Players Association’s Communications Department from the Georgetown SIM program. The men and women who have worked for me while pursuing their Masters in Sports Management at Georgetown have been exceptional. They are ambitious, intelligent and eager to learn. They also come into the internship with an above par skill set and advanced knowledge of the industry. These qualities are essential to the fast-paced world in which my team operates, therefore making Georgetown SIM students extremely desirable interns and future hires.”

- Jilane Rodgers, Communications Manager, NFL Players Association (NFLPA)

“Like in any business scenario, one of the best compliments is a repeat customer. Their return means they were delighted with the results and are eager for more. The same goes for our situation, as we’ve hired multiple interns from the GU program. Many of these interns earned their way to fulltime status and are now gainfully employed in their career of choice. Much of this stems from the solid makeup of GU students.

"They come in ready and prepared to work, perform at a diligent level, strive to supersede goals…all in a fast-paced and demanding work environment that is ultimately driven by tight deadlines and lofty expectations.”

- John B. Schlieman, Vice President, Business Operations & Executive Entertainment, The Washington Redskins
