The 2017-18 Kingston Frontenacs Ticket Sales Internship Program is dedicated towards introducing students to the business operations of a Canadian Major Junior hockey team. More specifically, students will learn the intricate details of ticket sales and service. As a ticket sales intern, you will play a vital role in the planning and execution of various ticket sales events and strategies. It will also be your goal to present the team with new and unique ideas that you feel will enable the Kingston Frontenacs to increase ticket sales along with the overall experience of attending Frontenacs games.
Another major responsibility of a ticket sales intern will be to support the current sales staff. Our ticket sales team is divided into three categories: inside sales, group sales, and corporate sales. Therefore, you will receive hands-on experience within all three divisions.
