Working in sports isn’t a game. It’s a career. To find a great sports job takes patience, dedication and hard work. It takes research. It’s something that you have to prepare for. Below are some basic steps to follow to prepare for and land your dream job:

  • Take a look at the field at-large. There are lots of career choices, and you want to know what they are and how to get them.
  • Attend sports career events, meet people, and find out how the people who have your dream job got it. Then, make a road map for yourself, and follow it.
  • Keep active to get experience. Be a dedicated volunteer or intern to build relationships and a solid support team. A thumbs-up from colleagues and mentors can give you the extra edge you need to make it.
  • Listen to the professionals for tips and advice. Join groups both on and offline to keep current with trends and career opportunities. Twitter and Linkedin are great places to meet people in the field and to let them get to know you. Just remember: Always be polite and respectful; you never know who’s listening, and you want to make a good impression. Besides, the people that you’re following probably know more than you.
  • Look outside the box. Make a list of transferrable skills that your dream job demands and see where you can develop those skills. If you’ll have to do scheduling, find opportunities to learn and practice how to schedule. If you have to give presentations, look for public speaking opportunities.

In short: Preparation is key. Be the person that everyone can count on, and learn the job to get the job. For more information, contact us. We know jobs in sports.
