How did you get the internship? Through teamwork jobs online?

When you were applying, how did you know where to send your resume, cover letter etc.? If doing it for the summer when do you think you should apply?

Thanks for doing this btw. Living the dream.

I lol'd at the thought that OP didn't want anyone to think he was working for the Browns. Had to make sure everyone knows he went to a prestigious franchise.
Congrats though. Your hustle is inspirational.

What is your room for growth in both salary and title with the team?

While you sound happy now, surely you have given a passing though to what's next, so what do you hope to turn the job into down the road?

Won't give the exact salary, but it's about half of what big firm associates make. More than enough for me, considering the hours. Three weeks vacation a year, which everyone uses with no problem. Also, have yet to need to do anything on the weekends or after I leave work on weekdays.


What about benefits?
Do you at least get tickets to all the home games? Any other perks?

How big is the legal department?

How often do they hire someone new?

What are your day to day duties like? Also, did most of your co-workers practice in big law firms practicing sports law or do you have the typical m&a/corporate biglaw associates as well?

Don't know much about trying to be a season-ticket holder in the NFL, but I'm guessing that OP is in Green Bay, New England, or perhaps the NEW YORK FOOTBALL Giants based on his "eternity" and Super Bowl comment.

Ya, if we take the last 7 Super Bowls we get Pittsburgh (3 appearances), Seattle, Indianapolis (2), Chicago, NYG (2), New England (2), Arizona, New Orleans, and Green Bay.

I don't think the "eternity" comment would apply to Seattle, Indianapolis, Arizona or New Orleans. So they're out

It would definitely apply to Green Bay and New England.

I am unsure about Pittsburgh, Chicago, and NYG.

OP mentioned that the NFL team is his school's local team... Probably points to New England being the team although I think it's pointless to derail this thread to speculate on what the team is.

E - I feel bad about contributing to attempt to out team, no need to discourage a good resource from continuing to share.
