David Holbrook is a Business Management major who is expected to graduate in spring of 2021.  This winter break he had an externship with Phoenix Suns in Phoenix, Arizona.

Please provide a brief description of what you did during your externship:

I got to meet a lot of people, see a little bit of what was done in inside sales, premium sales, season ticket sales, corporate partnerships, and marketing.

Why did you want to do this externship?

I want to work in sports.

Please describe your externship experience:

I shadowed Chris Moran, who worked in season ticket sales, but I also got to meet reps in inside sales, premium sales, corporate partnerships, and marketing. There were no meetings to attend, but I got to see a sales floor rally which was cool, and then got to work the game which was awesome. It was a very full day but well worth it.

What did you learn as a result of this externship?

Confirmed my desire to want to work in sports somewhere.

Anything else you would like to share about your experience?
