Promotions and Fan Development Intern / Pro Sports
The Carolina Hurricanes are currently seeking qualified interns for the upcoming summer and/or through the 2018-2019 season in the Promotions and Fan Development department.
The Promotions and Fan Development department strives to bring the benefits and excitement of hockey to all ages and skill levels. Through a wide range of promotions and fan development programs the department not only connects with our biggest fans, but those who have never picked up a stick or witnessed professional hockey. While there is a strong and noticeable presence at home hockey games, the Hurricanes promotions and fan development activities also extend into local schools, the business community and community events throughout the Triangle and North Carolina.
Our department is home to the Hurricanes mascot-- Stormy the Ice Hog; the fan development team--The Pepsi Storm Squad; and the Hurricanes youth and amateur hockey programs, all of which help further our objectives to impact the entire community.

-Help prepare for the upcoming 2018-2019 NHL season.
-Interns are expected to not only assist with daily tasks but also bring ideas to the department that add on to existing initiatives or bring new promotions and fan development programs.
-Must possess excellent writing, customer service and problem-solving skills.
-Experience working with youth programs considered a plus.
