The Boston Red Sox Fellowship program was created in 2006 to provide recent college graduates (and/or recipients of advanced degrees) the chance for immersion into the day-to-day operation of a sports franchise. The program provides an alternative method to increasing diversity in professional sports while also helping to attract talented college graduates into the sports industry.
Each year, the fellow will focus on an intensive, six-month working project while also getting the chance to participate in activities outside of their department. The Fellow will be paired with a senior level executive, who acts as a mentor, and will have access to additional resources throughout the program. At the Fellowship's conclusion, the Fellow will present his/her project findings to senior management. The program runs from July through December.
This year, we have identified a project that will provide the Fellow with a unique level of exposure throughout the entire Boston Red Sox organization. The project will be to research, design, and implement a new hire orientation program that will provide new employees insight into the baseball industry as well an introduction to the internal departments of the Boston Red Sox. The Fellow will gain significant exposure and experience in a professional environment while adding value to the Boston Red Sox organization, and their Human Resources platforms.
* Note: Fellows are not guaranteed employment with the Boston Red Sox after the Fellowship concludes.
Fellows must have exceptional communication skills and be proficient in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. All applicants must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher. Fellows are expected to work peak operation times throughout their program including some nights, weekends and holidays.
All majors are welcome.
