The Jockey Club (TJC) has launched a formal summer internship program for college students and recent college graduates to help support young people interested in the Thoroughbred industry. The structured program will begin in 2021 with up to three interns and will last eight weeks. The students will be exposed to all companies and departments within the organization with the opportunity to spend additional time in their areas of interest.
“While we have taken on interns in the past, we are excited to offer an official program to educate enthusiastic individuals on the vast operations of The Jockey Club and our contributions to the Thoroughbred breeding and racing industries so that they are set up for success when seeking full-time employment,” said Matt Iuliano, executive vice president and executive director of TJC. “The Jockey Club believes it is important to invest in the future workforce of our industry, which we have committed to through this initiative and our recently expanded academic scholarship offerings.”
The internships will take place in TJC's offices in Lexington, Ky., and New York, N.Y. Applications are accepted until Feb. 16. For more information, visit TJC's education page.
