I am so excited for this opportunity and can’t wait to officially get started! ”
“I hope to increase my soft and hard skills at fieldX.”
“I believe that filedX will be incredibly beneficial to me in both of those fields because not only will I be able to learn better communication skills, I will be learning them in an environment relating to sports.

I knew this would give me the chance to learn valuable skills that I would be unable to learn anywhere else and I am very excited to see where this opportunity takes me!”

“Hi, I am Roberto Sotelo, a current Campus Ambassador at Purdue University! I am studying biochemistry with the ultimate goal of attending medical school one day. This semester, I have been given the opportunity to work with Dr. Yetsa Tuakli-Wosornu, M.D, M.P.H, an Assistant Clinical Professor/Associate Research Scientist at Yale School of Public Health. Through this internship, I have been able to gain a more comprehensive experience about the medical field by being able to work closely with Dr. Yetsa Tuakli-Wosornu to monitor patient progress and recovery in a clinical setting. As a result, I have been able to expand on skills such as medical terminology, decision making, and communication in a health care setting.
However, one of the biggest takeaways I have gained through this experience so far is to be grateful for your own health.”
“fieldX gave me the opportunity to improve my leadership skills as a Zone Manager at Formula 1, where I had multiple real managerial responsibilities. Having such an important role – not just a typical intern role – exceeded my expectations of fieldXperience. When you’re working a live event, you’re putting yourself in potentially difficult situations which in turn improves your soft skills and helps you become a better professional and person. This managerial role allowed me to solve problems while practicing multitasking in a large working environment with high-profile clients. You can never have enough experience. I think learning by doing is the best way to gain experience and knowledge and fieldXperience provides that opportunity to learn. It was such an honor to receive the MVP Award for this Formula 1 experience and I am definitely looking forward to my next fieldXperience event to learn even more.”
Working the Formula 1 Military Outpost during the race in Austin gave me the opportunity to practice and showcase my customer service skills as well as demonstrate how to instill a “Culture of Care” with my other teammates – because it’s not only how you treat the customer, but how you treat those who work with you.
I’m still learning exactly what I love and am good at, so the Formula 1 micro-internship was a stepping stone to helping me find my true strengths and understand how I should best apply my skills. The connections and networking available were invaluable too.
Two years after my first experience at the Rose Bowl, I was trusted to lead a group of students at Super Bowl LIVE in Atlanta! These events have given me amazing insights into what it takes to work in the sport industry.
“I graduated with my undergrad from Concordia Wisconsin with a sport and entertainment major. Through my experience with Concordia I was able to get connected with fieldXperience and Sharyn and her team. The best part about working with fieldXperience was getting in the industry that I want to be a part of is seeing behind the scenes, not just the glamorous big game experience but how to get the fan experience, work with vendors, and see all the moving parts mold into one. I want to thank fieldXperience and Concordia for the amazing opportunities.”
“fieldX helped me grow in my connections and experience right after my undergraduate education. I was given the opportunity to work on site for both the NBC production “The Voice” season 13 finale shows as well as the L.A. Chargers Charity Golf Tournament with the L.A. Children’s Hospital. This experience helped me learn to adapt to situations at events and network with professionals running the production, and also guests attending the events.”
“Working at Formula 1 was my first time working an event and I can honestly say that working with fieldXperience was exceptional because I was set up for success from the start. Before working with fieldX, I knew my passion was for sports and that I wanted to work in the sporting realm, but this micro-internship solidified my decision. I will never forget my time practicing exceptional customer service at Formula 1 and the real world situations I was able to navigate as a fieldX Learner. I know the training and experience I’ve gained from fieldXperience will positively impact my future.”
“For my fieldXperience, I worked in the VIP exclusive hospitality location for Formula 1 at COTA. The fieldX team was a great resource helping me navigate so many unknown variables. The micro-internship allowed me to get real, valuable experience managing people on site and it fit into my busy school schedule.”
“As a young professional in the events industry, fieldXperience has filled the void of what I’ve been needing to gain experience and knowledge while pursuing my career. You truly can’t gain in a classroom what fieldX has to offer. I’m grateful to have participated in Leadercast Women and Formula 1 this year. Each event is completely different and unique, as are the lessons learned and values gained.”
“My name is Leah Refenes, I’m a third time fieldXer. I love going on these experiences because I’m always placed in a field where I know I’ll succeed and my natural talents will be ready to shine. Can’t wait to jet off to my next experience!”
Lauren is a senior at Michigan who was was a crucial aspect to the Voice event, representing fieldX she says, “I’m here with the 2 founders of fieldX on my first immersive industry experience. I’m in LA at Universal Studios on the season finale of the Voice. I’m working with VIP clients and sponsors, and I would love to talk more but I gotta go to work!”
“Like my fieldX peers, I was given a lot of freedom to make decisions during our fieldXperience at the Formula 1 Haas Hill hospitality area. fieldX is truly amazing and is going to change the sport industry by giving up-and-coming professionals like me the chance to problem solve in real industry situations as well as connect with leaders in the industry.”
“The experiences I’ve been a part of through fieldX have benefited me greatly by allowing me to make new connections in the industry I wouldn’t have otherwise made. Adding the fieldXperience micro-internship at the Formula 1 Haas Hill hospitality area to my resume will open new doors for me, diversify my resume and help me reach my career goals of working in sponsorship and business development.”
“Getting into the sport world isn’t hard. What’s hard is moving up! With fieldX, I’ve already had the experience of working both Super Bowl LIII and Formula 1 and have a network of connections to vouch for me. fieldXperience exceeded my expectations from training to actual real-world experience. The fieldX executives were not only professional, but also very personable and seemed passionate about really helping us students get ahead in our careers. The event Leaders entrusted us with responsibilities and let us make decisions on the fly. fieldX helped me determine that my passion was in guest services and hospitality which solidified my decision to change my major to Sport Management.”
“I am an introverted individual who has struggled with speaking to new people. In my program, I primarily learn problem-solving and product development strategies with limited interpersonal skills development to oral presentations and group work.
I have worked various sporting events that have helped me develop the skills to be an effective verbal communicator, so much so that interviews are easier and result in getting superior internships. My improved communication skills also got me a teaching assistant job.
I look forward to further developing my soft skills as they have proven to help guide my career down a successful path.”
After working Super Bowl LIV Clay Coltson reflects on his Xperience with a story, “One of the workers that I had was crying as I said goodbye because of the impact that I had on her while managing our event.”
“I would recommend fieldXperience to other students looking to gain real-world experience in a capacity that they may not have initially thought they needed. By working events like Formula 1, any fieldX student will be able to witness how a business operates a highly intensive and fast-paced event, which will prepare them for their future careers.”
“Having the opportunity to go on experiential learning opportunities with fieldX has equipped me with the skills needed to succeed in my profession, and business in general. In March I had the opportunity to go to Las Vegas to work the Forbes Luxury Summit. While at the summit, I learned what it takes to work in the Sport and Entertainment Business Industry. And I learned different business operations and roles within the industry. I was even chosen to be a personal assistant for Marissa Tomei, in which I had to perform different tasks. While working at this Micro-internship I was pushed outside of my comfort zone , I learned how to work under pressure, I learned how to go above and beyond project expectations, and lastly I learned that I can do anything I put my mind to. “
After the Leadercast event, Kenneth McArdle said, “As volunteers we all felt very included and the integration of us into the team felt quite seamless. The selection of speakers were amazing, they were all very engaging and well received.”
Luke Konkel after working the Bruce Arians Celebrity Golf event says, “This was one of the best events that I have been given the opportunity to work. Once we figured out who worked well together, we made this an event to remember giving first class experience to an amazing family foundation.”
