Co-op Confidential: Gregory Monforte

Name: Greg Monforte
Year: Pre-Junior
Company: Turnkey Sports & Entertainment
Location: Haddonfield, NJ
Position: Market Intelligence Intern

Who is Turnkey Sports & Entertainment?

Turnkey Sports & Entertainment is broken into two main areas of focus.  The first is Market Intelligence.  Market Intelligence has two parts, surveyor which works with teams and leagues to custom market research and prospector which automatically finds, appends, and scores sales leads.  The second area of focus is Executive Recruiting that helps teams and leagues fill different positions in the organization. 

What are my responsibilities?

My responsibilities change from day to day.  I help with anything that anyone in the office needs help with.  The main two things that I am working on now are programing surveys and creating marketing lists in the four major sports leagues.  These marketing lists allow the company to reach out to the people that would be interested in the different software that we offer.  Some of my other responsibilities include creating pivot tables for open end questions in a survey, helping to set up excel files in order to be analyzed, and closing searches for the recruiting side.

Do I like it so far?

So far I have enjoyed working at Turnkey a lot.  There is constantly work that needs to be done and I know that they give me important work and not just busy work to keep me occupied.  I enjoy answering the phone and getting to talk to people in the industry even if it is only usually for less than a minute.  My favorite part about the coop is the atmosphere and people.  It is very laid back and they allow you to wear whatever you want so one day I can be in jeans and polo and the next shorts and a tee-shirt.  The people are super friendly and made it very easy for me to integrate into the work family.  As a company we do many events together including playing in a high pitch softball league and Spring Fling on Fridays. 


The only downside that I have is that sometimes the work can be a little tedious.  Most of the work I do on a day to day basis is the same thing.  This can make the job a little boring at times but that’s why I try to ask different the different parts for work so I can try new things and not be doing the same thing over and over. 

What am I looking forward to in the future?

In the future I am looking forward to taking on more responsibilities in the company.  Every day I try to ask for more tasks so I can learn as much as possible.  I want to come out of this internship with as many skills to help me in the future as possible.
