#ThrowbackThursday: “It’s not goodbye, it’s see you later.”

In the past few weeks, we said goodbye to the last
of our summer interns and the season came to an end, preparations also began to
recruit our 2014 spring and summer intern classes.

What better way to bid a fond farewell to our 2013
interns and provide information to potential interns than to offer up a
compilation of some of my favorite blogs, tweets and photos that were posted
over the course of our 13-week summer season by our 2013 intern class.

As someone who has completed two AJGA internships,
I’m quick to say that one of the amazing perks of the job is the beautiful golf
courses and scenery that serve as your “office” every day. A quick glance at
social media has me believing that much of our 2013 intern class shared my
feeling.

Not only do our interns visit beautiful places,
they meet new people and make new friends in the process.

They may have been tasked with blogging for us
here on the AJGA blog, but a few of our communications interns also took to the
blogosphere on their own. Tim Hamilton, Megan Arnold and Tim Jackman are just a
few of the interns that wrote about their weekly encounters and experiences
with anything from rain and inclement weather, to great host families.

“It
is really awesome to see how each tournament teaches me different things and
how I am growing as a result of each one.”
  – Tim Jackman

“When
I was walking around the clubhouse on Sunday I walked right by Rory McIlroy.
Needless to say it was a bit of a surprise. Just not someone I was expecting to
see that day. It was quite interesting and cool to see one of the best in the
world in the office right next to ours.”
– Tim Hamilton

“Every
town had its own flavor and beat that we got to be part of for a week. It
opened my eyes to the beauty and diversity around the country (or at least the
south central).”
– Megan Arnold

Hopefully my #ThrowbackThursday was nostalgic for
those of you who just got off the road from the #AJGAInternship. We can’t thank
you enough for your awesome work helping us run events all across the country
this year.

For those of you that are reading this and thinking
to yourselves that the internship may be something you want to do, be sure to
check out the “Careers” page on our website.

Lauren Shelly, the AJGA’s Manager of Recruiting
and Special Events, as well as a host of other AJGA staff across varying
departments, will be hitting the road to visit career fairs across the country
this fall. Be sure to stop by, visit and ask any questions you may have about
the #AJGAInternship.  We can’t wait to
meet you!
