The 2020 Internship Application is closed.
Bethesda Big Train offers five exciting internships for the summer: Operations and Marketing Internship, Social Media Internship, and Sports Writing Internship, Radio Broadcasting Internship, and In-Game Host Internship. Internships are available for college and graduate school students. High school students are encouraged to apply to our volunteer program. The internship is unpaid and runs from May 20, 2020 through August 4, 2020.
Our interns are vital to the success of the Big Train operation. Operations interns set up the stadium for each home game, sell tickets and merchandise, lead the on-field games and activities, run the concession stand, assist with picnics, market our team in the local community, and much more. Writing interns create original content for our website and newsletter, serve as the team statisticians and manage Povich Field’s scoreboard and music systems, and serve as team statisticians. Broadcast interns provide play-by-play and color commentary for every Big Train game, home and away, for fans to stream live online, free of charge. Our social media interns get first-hand experience posting live updates for our games, molding our online presence into one that will reel in more fans while keeping our current audience engaged.
Just as players come to Bethesda to grow on the field, our internship program gives college students the opportunity to hone their skills in the sport management and journalism industries. In recent years, Big Train interns have gone on to even greater success in the sports world at organizations such as:
- Monumental Sports & Entertainment (Washington Capitals, Mystics & Wizards)
- D.C. United
- Washington Redskins
- Milwaukee Brewers
- New Jersey Devils

...and much more!
