Frequently Asked Questions about Sports Marketing Jobs

Sports marketing utilizes sports to promote and sell products and services. Professional, collegiate and other alternative sports organizations utilize sports to market a team and gain credibility with their fanbase. For example, billboard ads, TV commercials, and celebrity endorsements are all forms of sports marketing.

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.
