The American Junior Golf Association (AJGA) 2018 internship programs

The backbone of the AJGA is its internship program. Each year we employee 100 interns to help us run our junior golf tournaments and/or work in-house at the AJGA National Headquarters. Our internship program is an excellent training ground for tournament operations and media relations. We hire and train hard working, motivated and positive problem solvers who make a difference in our organization and the industry.
 
The AJGA is committed to helping our interns further their career goals both within our organization and with our partners within the industry. We would love for you to share our internship opportunity to groups you are connected with. Students may visit www.ajga.org/careers for the online application.
 
A few important items to note:
  • Applicants must be 21 years of age by the start of the internship (dates are on the website).
  • Deadline Dates: Spring Internship – November 7 & Summer Internship – January 10 – The sooner an application is submitted, interviews and decision making process can begin.
  • We are encouraging those that apply indicate they found out about the internship through the “Diversity Taskforce” on their application.  
  • Golfers and non-golfers are invited to apply.
 
We look forward to working with you and growing the industry.
 
Best, 
Lauren Shelly
Director of Recruiting, American Junior Golf Association

#AgencyLife: Can You Handle it?

August 25, 2017
 
So much can be learned in the classroom, but when you are given the opportunity to join a once in a lifetime trip, you realize that there is much more to be learned beyond the books. Of course, I can go to class and learn the 4 P’s of marketing, how to write a business plan, or the basics of accounting, but do textbooks allow you to tour companies and speak to executives?! It is not every day that millennials get to go face-to-face with such well-known companies, break stereotypes, and change the conversation. 
 
The National Millennial Community was given the opportunity to speak to employees of all levels and listened to the many different stories and paths taken to get to where they are now. Textbooks paint a vague picture when it comes to working in an agency, but it is only upon visiting a company that you learn about the individual paths, challenges, successes, values and company culture. It was interesting to learn how some people went straight into the positions they planned for after graduation, whereas others, started in different areas and worked their way up into their desired roles.
 
 
Textbooks do not teach you about the cons of an agency: extreme stress, coffee addictions, long hours, and the amount of dry shampoo bottles people go through because they don’t even have time to wash their hair! Textbooks also do not teach you about the rush of adrenaline you get when you finish a project, the feeling you get when a client compliments your work, or even company happy hours!
 
Almost everyone who spoke noted that “the agency life is not for everyone” which made me question… is the agency life for me? In a classroom setting I would never think to even question if the agency life was for me or not. Learning about the different experiences and day-to-day tasks opened my eyes to the agency world. 
 
Without the experience and relationships I gained in Chicago with the National Millennial Community, I would not be able to say with confidence that I am ready to take on the hustle and bustle we call the #agencylife.
