Interested college students can apply online at http://floridapanthers.com/PresidentForAWeek. Candidates will be asked to submit short essay questions and may be required to conduct a phone interview with Panthers executives as part of the vetting process. The winning contestant will spend a full business week with Yormark including attending all his internal and external meetings, business functions, BB&T Center events and more.
“I am excited to provide a local college student with an in depth look inside the world of a President of a professional sports and entertainment organization,” Yormark said. “Hopefully, the experience will be invaluable as he or she move through their college career and prepare to enter the work force.”
