Dynasty Athlete Representation

Potential Interns Take Note!

Guest post from Justin Herzig, HR Director, Dynasty Athlete Representation LLC.

If you take a look at Dynasty’s website, one of the aspects highlighted when describing our services is the word innovation.  As we have always been focused on using the newest forms of technology and networking to better represent our clients, we continue to aspire to be the next level of Sports Agency: Sports Agency 2.0.

This Summer, we are excited to be having our 8th Internship Class.  While the progression of the internship program is enormous, the most difficult part always lies in the selection process.  With hundreds of interns applying each semester, the challenge of distinguishing oneself from the field is a common worry.  Following the steps that many top universities have already taken, we are now allowing all applicants to submit a video essay along with their resume and cover letter, hopefully allowing them to present the more creative side not able to be captured on paper.

If you have already applied or are still planning on applying, feel free to take advantage of this opportunity.  After making your own personal essay, please post it on YouTube or a similar site, and then just send that link to [email protected].  Remember, the deadline to apply for the 2010 Summer Internship Program is April 15th.  I am looking forward to seeing what creative and interesting video essays you will make!
