Bulls Announce Ultimate Sports Intern Program

The Amarillo Bulls, proud members of the North American Hockey League, are set to launch a new internship program called “The Ultimate Sports Intern.”

The interns will be selected in early June and compete throughout the summer and next season with the winner to be named at the final regular season game. To add a competitive edge, one intern will be eliminated monthly similar to the popular TV show “The Apprentice.” The winning intern will be awarded $5000 cash, and the runner-up will be awarded $2000.

The interns will gain hands-on experience in all areas of the business operations of the Bulls organization. They will be expected to work both as a team and as a self-motivated individual.   

“We want to offer those young, ambitious, sports-minded individuals an opportunity to gain valuable experience and better prepare themselves for a career in the sports industry,” said Bulls General Manager Chris Laurie. “I personally completed my internship with the Vancouver Canucks of the NHL, and I cannot express the value of the practical learning and the impact it has had on my career. This will be a fun, competitive, rewarding experience for all the interns!”

Candidates can apply by submitting their resumes to djpuska@amarillobulls.com or call 806-242-1122 for more information.  The deadline to apply is June 3, 2011.
