The NFL's highly selective and competitive Junior Rotational Program provides recent college graduates with an unparalleled opportunity to contribute to the organization's success through a series of challenging project work assignments, League events, and networking opportunities across various departments.
Roles & Responsibilities
Program participants may complete up to four rotations over a two-year period in any one of the following offices or locations: NFL League Office (NY), NFL Media (CA), NFL Films (NJ), or NFL International Offices. During each rotation, participants are placed in a department with project-based assignments. Specific department rotations will be determined based on actual business need. Departments that have participated in the program previously include: Communications & Public Affairs, Events, Finance, Football Operations, International, Marketing & Sales, Broadcasting, Labor Operations, and Media.
Long-term Career Placement
Placement opportunities within the NFL are based on existing business needs, the participant's performance, and previous work experience. Upon completion of the program, participants may opt to pursue further education, opportunities at NFL Clubs and partner organizations, or opportunities outside the NFL. While this is a full-time two year rotational program, continued employment beyond the scheduled end date is not guaranteed.
Completed applications must be submitted by Friday, October 23rd, 2020 at 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time. No submissions will be accepted after the deadline.
