Dream careers are possible for College of Charleston students. Sophia Cucinotta is a rising senior, Marketing major, and ticketing and fan services academic intern for the Philadelphia Eagles this summer.
“Growing up a Philadelphia Eagles fan, this internship is a dream come true,” said Cucinotta. “I’ve had my eye on this opportunity for years.”
Cucinotta received the coveted position by applying on Teamwork, a job posting site for sports business positions. She then continued to reach out via Linkedin and email. After a few rounds of interviews, she was offered the official position.
“There are eleven interns in my department,” said Cucinotta. “There were several hundred applications.”
Cucinotta’s day to day activities include answering phone calls, emails, and assisting with season ticket sales and marketing. She also serves as a receptionist for NovaCare Complex, the Eagles practice facility.
When not working for Eagles events, Cucinotta helps with other events taking place at Lincoln Financial Field. Her summer has been busy, with the venue hosting three Taylor Swift concerts, NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championships, the Eagles Autism Challenge, and more.
“I look forward to finishing out the summer here – experiencing training camp and continuing to build relationships within the organization” said Cucinotta. “I hope to return to the Philadelphia Eagles family after graduation as an official employee. Go birds!”
