Senior sociology major Gary Acquah has spent his summer working as an intern with ESPN’s Human Resources department. In an interview for Front Row’s “Intern Chronicles” series, Acquah was asked to describe his routine, his role at ESPN, and how college football and his internship were related.
“I was able to work on a team – as I do in football – to get tasks done,” said Acquah. “As a captain to about 95 players, I hear many different ideas and suggestions that come about, just as I did working on a team in an office setting. It allowed me to listen to different ideas from different people to achieve a common goal.”
