Internship Program
2014 Perfect Game Internship Program

Perfect Game welcomes candidates from diverse cultural and educational backgrounds.

If you have an interest in the game of baseball, scouting, or event operations, have a strong academic performance and professional drive, we encourage you to consider Perfect Game’s internship program.

Candidates currently pursuing a college degree may apply for summer internships. We look for individuals who value teamwork, have leadership potential and a passion for excellence.

Our interns receive a comprehensive professional and educational experience in a dynamic, fast-paced, team-oriented environment. You will be given responsibility, outstanding training and the chance to learn and contribute on a daily basis. The primary intent of the Perfect Game internship program is to provide students with supplemental education in their chosen field. Interns do not replace our employees, but rather are provided the opportunity to learn alongside them. While post-graduate employment with Perfect Game is certainly not guaranteed, numerous interns have gone on to join the Perfect Game family full time.

We appreciate your interest in Perfect Game.

Perfect Game is the leader in showcase and tournament events at the high school level, and conducts a series of such events all year long, with the majority of these events taking place from late May through late October. During this time the days are long and the events run through the weekends.

The top players from across the country as well Canada, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic use these events as a way to gain exposure in front of MLB scouts and college recruiters while playing with and against their peers.

The Perfect Game internship provides an excellent opportunity for candidates to learn scouting and scouting terminology while also receiving a platform in which the interns can meet individuals from the scouting and college recruiting community. Several former interns are now serving key roles for Perfect Game and/or have moved onto professional scouting careers as a result of this opportunity.

All interns are responsible for their own housing in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa area.

When on the road for an event, all travel, lodging and appropriate meals will be covered.
