2022 Internship Testimonies

“My experience as a Roughrider intern exceeded my expectations. I learned so much, met so many amazing/kind people and gained the experience I needed to learn to feel more confident about entering the work force at the end of my degree. I owe so much praise to Craig Reynolds and the HR team for creating an amazing organizational culture where I could come in and thrive each day.”

-Easton Powers, Grey Cup Intern

“The Saskatchewan Roughrider Internship program has been one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had in my life. Getting the opportunity to work in professional sports is a privilege and opened up so many future doors for myself. If you get the opportunity to be a part of the Club, you definitely won’t regret it. The Roughrider organization is full of positive energy and likeminded professionals who make coming to work fun.”

-Michael Letts, Football Operations Intern

“Working with the Saskatchewan Roughriders organization and being in the Internship program is an incredible experience. Right from the start I was welcomed with open arms from everyone and felt like a valued teammate by those around me. Being able to step into a professional sports environment and work with two leaders in the Game Entertainment and Events field who bring experience, a wealth of knowledge and passion everyday has helped me grow personally and professionally. The workplace culture is second to none, no matter the department you’re in everyone supports one another and has a team mindset. Being apart of Saskatchewan’s biggest sports team was a dream come true for me, and it can be for you as well through the Saskatchewan Roughriders Internship program!”

-Mitchel Cook, Game Entertainment Intern

“My experience in the Saskatchewan Roughriders internship program was nothing short of amazing. The workplace culture is so welcoming that it felt like I was part of the team right away. I was able to contribute meaningful work soon after starting. Working with my supervisor was great to develop my professional skills and improve at the job. I never felt like I was alone or left to hang dry, as my fellow coworkers provide a great support. Being able to interact with players is a really unique experience. Not a lot of people can say they’ve talked to Mario Alford about his passion for hunting or with Pete Robertson and his journey in the NFL. Looking back to when I started, I have learned so much. My writing skills have improved leaps and bounds and I’ve learned what it takes to be a professional here. I am so happy with my time here.”
