PGA TOUR Internship Program 

In 1992 the PGA TOUR established an internship program to support our commitment to strengthen diversity within our organization as well as the golf industry. This paid internship is a 10 week program that provides enrolled college students and recent graduates an opportunity to build their work experience and learn the behind the scenes operations of the PGA TOUR.

Opportunities traditionally are available in Corporate Marketing, Human Resources, Communications, Sales & Marketing, International Business Affairs, Tournament Business Affairs, Legal, Finance & Accounting, Domestic & International Media and Digital.

Application Process: Completed on-line applications must be submitted on or before January 15, 2018.

Personal Statement Requirement:   A Personal Statement is a required component to apply for our internship program. The Personal Statement allows you to provide more insight to "who you really are". Please answer both essay prompts below.  Limit your response to a maximum for 500 words between the 2 essays.  They can be divided however you choose (ex. 20 words for prompt 1, 480 for prompt 2; 250 words for prompt 1, 250 words for prompt 2 etc.).  Please upload your response (in Word (.doc) or Adobe (.pdf) format) during the application process by clicking on the "Add Resume & Attachments" link. We will only consider applications with completed statements.

Personal Statement Question:

Prompt 1- "Mosaic"

Similar to the description of our country, the PGA TOUR's internship program has been referred to as a melting pot.  However, a melting pot often does not allow individuals to hold on to their individuality.  President Jimmy Carter once described America by stating, "We become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic.  Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams."

Mosaics are beautiful pieces of art, where different pieces make up a wonderful whole. This style allows for individual pieces to remain unique, while together creating a magnificent work of art. 

Describe how you are a unique piece of a larger part.  

Prompt 2 - "Verse"

In the movie Dead Poets Society, the teacher recites Walt Whitman's poem Oh Me! Oh Life!, which ends with the phrase "That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse."  He then asks his students, "What will your verse be?" Whitman's play is thought to be a metaphor for civilization of life of the human race in general. Describe what your verse will be.

Whitman reminds us that it is in this life – “this powerful play”, that we each have a pivotal role. We may contribute a verse! This defines who we are and what we are about. It is our personal mission statement. What kind of legacy would you want to leave?

We look forward to reviewing your application!
