SALLY'S PICK: NBA Associate Program 2017 at National Basketball Association
APPLICATION DEADLINE: October 16, 2016

With 7000+ job/internships postings in Handshake it can be hard to know where to start. I like the keyword search and saved search features to manage postings and found the Associate Program using the keyword: sports.
