Jordan Wolff interned with the Collegiate League of the Palm Beaches in the summer of 2019 and performed the tasks of being an announcer as well as taking on some journalism duties. Jordan did an outstanding job working for the CLPB, and after completing his internship he had aspirations to continue to work in the sports world. In an interview with the Director of Operations for the CLPB, Max Dakin, Jordan went on to elaborate on his experience with the internship, as well as where he is at now. 

What is your current job?

Jordan: I recently accepted a job as a Full-time Production Assistant with the ESPN Next program. 

How did you find the CLPB internship?

Jordan: So, I attended Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT and its Communications program required all students to have an internship completed for credit before graduation. I’ve always loved sports, especially baseball. I realized that being from New Jersey, employers for sports internships generally look for more experienced applicants. I wanted to expand my horizons and looked up baseball internships in Florida. In 2019, I stumbled upon the CLPB and it seemed like a fantastic opportunity to learn valuable broadcast journalism skills. With my grandparents living there and wanting to see me more, it felt like a great match.

How was your internship experience with the CLPB?

Jordan: At the start, I was nervous because I didn’t know anyone, didn’t really know my responsibilities and had to adapt to a new area and lifestyle. Once the season got going, I got a lot more comfortable working everyday in a consistent routine. I seriously enjoyed being an everyday public address announcer, doing post-game interviews and being a helping hand to the on-field product. Overall, this was a great chance for me to be able to put myself in a position to adapt for future opportunities. 

How would you say the CLPB internship helped you get to where you are now?

Jordan: The CLPB really helped me get to where I am because I got to see how an every day league truly operates. As a sports fan, I was so used to watching the game, that I didn’t think about what goes into a game. As an employee, you show up early, you help set up equipment, you make sure the equipment works, you get the lineups, you introduce the event to fans and then you can’t take your eye off the game. Seeing those little details helped open my eyes into how leagues and even general operations can become successful. Being ahead of the game and making sure all your responsibilities are taken care of are so vital to what the fan/viewer sees. In today’s world, social media allows for even the littlest of errors to be criticized. I realize that some people like to criticize everything, but paying attention to those little details allows the product as a whole to enhance. That’s the mentality I aim to bring to the ESPN Next program and whatever opportunities could arise after that.
