Eric Duckworth’s love for the New Orleans Saints did not prevent The University of Southern Mississippi business student from serving an internship with the NFL team’s division rival.
Duckworth, a senior business management major, spent the first quarter of this year working as an unpaid intern with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization in Tampa, Fla. He considers the unique experience “a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I was very blessed to receive.”
The Meridian, Miss. native originally hoped to land an internship in some capacity with his beloved Saints but nothing materialized. After learning that the Bucs were taking internship applications, Duckworth submitted his resumé and waited. “After a few weeks I received an e-mail asking to set up a phone interview and from there came three more interviews,” he said. “I honestly could not believe that out of the incredible number of resumés they received and interviews they conducted, I was selected.”
