Maya Freeman To Tour With American Junior Golf Association

Maya FreemanDuring Fall Break, Maya Freeman (ECC ’18) took a Career Road Show trip to Atlanta, GA with CBU’s Career Services. While on this trip, students visited the Atlanta Hawks arena and toured their facilities. “Our guide, Mr. Ben Brown, New Memberships Manager, spoke with us about careers within the sports business industry,” Maya recalls, “and suggested we all look for a summer internship in the sports field. Taking his advice, I searched for internships through teamworkonline.com and applied for at least 20. Among those was a communications intern position for the American Junior Golf Association (AJGA). Once I received word that I made it through the application process, I was invited to their headquarters in Atlanta as a Top 100 Candidate. All candidates were put on teams of ten interns for the weekend and we were evaluated in several areas. After the weekend, I was offered the position as a Communications Intern for the summer. I will travel extensively throughout the United States helping to conduct national junior golf tournaments. I will be on a team of 6-7 other communications and operations interns and travel with a specific itinerary.” As a Tournament Communications Intern, Maya will be responsible for performing all on-site communications and media relations duties at each tournament.
