Reviewing Applications, Interviews and Hiring

Who can apply and what's expected. College students and recent graduates in the area, across North Carolina and around the country are encouraged to apply.  While sports and motorsports management degrees are increasing in popularity, there is no course of study that is required for internships and all will be considered.  Applicants are expected to be motivated and be willing to work a minimum of 20 hours a week including nights and weekends during events.  Those accepting an offer for an internship position who live out of state or a great distance from Concord, North Carolina will have to cover all expenses of relocation to the area.  This internship is great for any career-minded individual interested in event management.

Number of Internship Positions Available: SCC has one internship position available per semester.

Interviews and hiring: Applicants may be called for an initial telephone interview by the coordinators of the internship program in addition to a formal interview with the SCC Director.

The Program

Orientation for Interns. After an applicant accepts the offer of an internship, he/she will be asked to sign a simple statement of agreement that, among other things, sets forth the intern's understanding that the internship is not paid and does not guarantee or imply future employment; in addition, it includes a covenant of confidentiality. Interns are also asked to provide us with emergency contact information and fill out a tax form in the event they are paid the Semester Stipend (explained below).

Semester Stipend. Internships are unpaid positions at SCC. However, as a token of gratitude, all interns who complete the semester internship and work the race events held during the semester internship will receive a stipend.

Intern Responsibilities. The SCC intern will help maintain and compile relevant databases and contact lists for better communication, assist in designing and implementing sponsorship proposals, compile public announcements, design marketing tools, assist in organizing events by detailing auction items and timelines and during events get hands-on experience by helping coordinate behind the scenes.

School Credits. Some interns will seek or be required by their schools to get academic credit for completing an internship. While the SCC employees will be available to work with interns to secure the necessary authorizations for such credit (including necessary communication with the colleges), it will be the responsibility of each intern to arrange for the completion of all necessary paperwork to certify course credits.
