Evansville Icemen

The Evansville IceMen organization works collaboratively with colleges to offer internships to highly motivated and committed students who wish to build upon their college education with practical work experience in the fast-paced, results driven world of the Central Hockey League. The internship program is a comprehensive and flexible strategy of applied learning incorporated into the college curriculum to enable the student to define, evaluate and achieve career-related objectives. This learning is based upon supervised work experiences in departments throughout the organization. The internship program offers students opportunities for personal, technical and professional development and practical, "hands on" experience working under the guidance of our department heads. Students learn technical skills, knowledge and behaviors critical to successful performance on the job. Interns also have the opportunity to work and network with industry professionals and local business leaders.

Specific objectives for each intern are established by closely examining the intern's background, selecting those areas of professional development that need greater emphasis, and working collaboratively with the intern to establish training objectives that will integrate, supplement and enhance the student's academic program.

We accept candidates from all major areas of study for internships; however, we attempt to match appropriate majors with the department offering the internship. Candidates must be current college students and must receive academic credit for the internship. Candidates must have housing available in the Evansville area and must be willing to work long and flexible hours including work weeks, IceMen home hockey games, and IceMen events.

Many past interns who have planned to continue a career path in professional sports have been given that opportunity to continue either with the Evansville Otters or with other professional sports teams.  One your resume has been received we will contact you to set-up an interview to discuss the guidelines.
