Questions?

Remember, marketing is marketing regardless of the industry. Your education, training and experience outside of the sports industry translates to your next job within the sports industry. The fundamentals will always remain the same. In our ten years of working with hiring managers from sports organizations from around the country, we have rarely seen a listing requiring sports industry experience. Time and time again, sports employers want a competitive personality who is able to take their skills and apply them to the sports industry. Your background is not nearly as important as your desire to work hard and succeed.

Thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly. I have used this site for years and it helped me to get my first job 3 years ago at ESPN. I am currently working in Los Angeles for FOX Sports Net and I do not need this service right now. I am sure I will use it again in the future. Thanks again. Adam Goldberg
