In addition to departmental work, all interns are required to attend weekly OTAs – organized team activities – which includes engagement with industry experts, networking opportunities, professional skill development and team building activities.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame understands most individuals seeking an internship are doing so to gain experience. While no particular professional experience is required, preference is given to those who show that they have taken initiative to develop their personal and professional skills.

All summer interns will receive a stipend while interning at the Hall of Fame. If an applicant is seeking college credit, the Hall of Fame will work to meet all necessary requirements.

The 2024 Summer Internship Program has been filled. The 2025 Summer Internship Program will be open for applications in October 2024.

“As an intern we had an Organized Team Activity (OTA) every Wednesday that included guest speakers from the management team, as well as outside guests from the Green Bay Packers and NFL Films.
