Position Summary

Annual program - Spring (March 2023)

Deloitte’s Sports Practice is committed to the success of athletes not just in the field of play, but also in life. To help athletes with the transition from their athletic career to their business career, we have partnered with SHINE, within our Client and Market Growth (CMG) group, to create the Athlete Internship Experience (AIE). Through the program you will learn foundational business skills, be exposed to real business issues, and have various opportunities for business mentorship.  

Spring/Fall Programs:

13-week program where you will be matched with two teams that you will split your time supporting for the duration of the program. Like the Summer program, you will develop new skills, work with a diverse group of professionals, and gaining first-hand exposure to the tools, processes, and services we provide to clients. You will get to know athletes who share similar goals, attend organization-hosted events, meet staff members in other departments, and network with people in your field of interest.

Work you will do

Regardless of which cohort you join, as a participant in SHINE’S AIE, you will receive both local and national trainings, networking events, and community activities to enhance your internship experience. You will be assigned to a few teams within Client & Market Growth, such as Strategic Marketing, Communications, Client Account Management, Pursuits, etc. Once assigned to your teams, you will provide support by helping facilitate market targeting activities such as orchestrating social media campaigns, supporting business expansion initiatives, developing promotional marketing materials and sales tools, supporting internal and external communications teams, and managing major promotional events such as trade shows, industry speaking events, sponsorships, and internal conferences related to key industry clients. You will use your organizational skills to develop timelines and work with diverse groups of locally and virtually based professionals.

Caution against fraudulent job offers!

We have been informed of instances where jobseekers are led to believe of fictitious job opportunities with Deloitte US (“Deloitte”). In one or more such cases, false promises of actual or potential selection, or initiation or completion of the recruitment formalities appear to have been or are being made. Some jobseekers appear to have been asked to pay money to specified bank accounts of individuals or entities as a condition of their selection for a ‘job’ with Deloitte. These individuals or entities are in no way connected with Deloitte and do not represent or otherwise act on behalf of Deloitte.

We would like to clarify that:

  • At Deloitte, ethics and integrity are fundamental and not negotiable.
  • We are against corruption and neither offer bribes nor accept them, nor induce or permit any other party to make or receive bribes on our behalf.
  • We have not authorized any party or person to collect any money from jobseekers in any form whatsoever for promises of getting jobs in Deloitte.
  • We consider candidates on merit and that we provide an equal opportunity to eligible applicants.
  • No one other than designated Deloitte personnel (e.g., a Deloitte recruiter or Deloitte hiring partner) is permitted to extend any job offer from Deloitte.

Anyone who at any time has made or makes any payment to any party in exchange for promises of job or selection for a job with Deloitte or any matter related to this (including those for ‘registration’, ‘verification’ or ‘security deposit’) or otherwise engages with any such person who has made or makes fraudulent promises or offers, does so (or has done so) entirely at their own risk. Deloitte takes no responsibility or liability for any such unauthorized or fraudulent actions or engagements. We encourage jobseekers to exercise caution.
