East Texas Sports & Entertainment - Graphic Design Internship - Free Housing

The East Texas Pump Jacks are offering exciting internship opportunities to help launch your career. The graphic design internship includes:

  • Work on the look and feel of team communications across various media.
  • Craft design elements for advertisements, video, programs, promotions, and merchandise.
  • Assist in the design of the team’s unique souvenir program.
  • Learn from an award-winning industry veteran in a small, hands-on environment.
  • Join a nationally-ranked organization with a history of sending grads to full-time jobs in the industry.
  • FREE housing!

This is a great chance to get hands-on experience and put your stamp on the look and feel of a visible, public organization. Housing is provided, so all you have to worry about is making the most of your summer!

As the team’s graphic design intern, you will help craft the way the team presents itself to the public. You will design print ads and contribute to television spots, while also providing graphic elements for the team website and social media. The graphic design intern will help develop the team’s unique souvenir program, the only baseball program that is designed and printed in-house for every home game. Your skills will also be employed to assist in creating promotional items and merchandise. This position will be a true cross-departmental role, giving you the opportunity to contribute to much of the organization and sculpt what fans see when they interact with the team.

This is not your typical “go-fer” internship; you’ll have substantive responsibilities that will provide you valuable experience. Moreover, you won’t be simply taking orders; as a full-time member of the front office, you will participate in staff meetings and have a direct impact on how this team takes shape.

Unlike our operations interns, your primary focus will be graphic design. While our operations interns rotate through a variety of roles during the season, your responsibilities will be more focused, although you may also be a part of our ongoing outreach efforts. Therefore, this position is best suited for someone who is pursuing a career in graphic design, particularly within a sports context. If you want a broader experience within a sports organization, or if you’re unsure about your future aspirations in sports, you may instead want to consider our operations internship.

Internship candidates should be interested in a career in sports graphic design and enthusiastic about the opportunity to join a vibrant organization. Prior experience in graphic design is important, and previous work in sports is beneficial, but not necessary. The position demands the ability to use the tools of the trade, such as Microsoft Office and Adobe Creative Suite, particularly Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator. Creativity and the ability to think outside the box are also beneficial. You will be doing a good deal of individual work, but you must also be ready and willing to work as part of a team, and you must be able to balance several projects at once.

Interns enjoy free housing for the duration of the program; the team does not pay a stipend, but interns will earn commissions on outside sales. Interns will be expected to begin work by early to mid-May – starting early is encouraged, if possible – and work through the end of the season in mid-August. There may be an opportunity for a full-time position at the conclusion of the program for the right intern, and ownership will use its contacts to help secure employment for all successful participants who want to pursue a career in the sports business. Most importantly, though, you will gain substantial experience that will serve you throughout your professional career.
