Video: Become a Nets intern by hanging out in Manhattan

Aug 17, 2012, 12:06 PM EDT

This is a great story… however for you college students out there trying to get an internship, we can’t really recommend this as the best way to go about it.

The story goes that college student Vivek Shah is hanging out near Rockafeller Center in Manhattan when Brooklyn Nets CEO Brett Yormark is walking by, leaving a sushi lunch with the Russian basketball team. Shah recognized Yormark, tells him what a huge NEts fans he is and asks to get a picture with him, then Yormark invites him back to the Nets new headquarters. While there he gives the guy some new Nets gear — and an internship in their finance department.

Look, if you can recognize Yormark on the street, you deserve a job with the Nets.

And while the story seems a little far-fetched, if you can stroke the ego of the CEO you can usually get a job anywhere.

Hat tip to The Basketball Jones and Nets Daily.

    I work around Rockefeller. I think it’s time for me to start camping out there with a picture of Brett Yormark!!

    Nice move by the kid. Bet he stalked him and gave it a shot.

    Six other GMs in the league met this kid over the last couple of months for a “picture” too lol
